My website up?

What does it do?

Mawui is an application that checks a website at regular intervals to ensure your favourite site is online.

I developed Mawui to monitor great sites on troubled hosts, or troubled sites on great hosts. It lets me know when a website is experiencing problems. Many of us today have blogs or business sites and it is nice to have the peace of mind that Mawui brings.


Mawui runs in the background with only a couple of configuration options.

Mawui main settings

Setup is easy :

Fill in the location box with the website address to check the site you're interested in.

Add some of the website text to the location box so Mawui can confirm the site is working.

Hit save and you're done.

The extra options :

In the start up options, click enable if you want Mawui to run the next time your computer turns on.

The frequency setting sets how long Mawui waits before checking the site again. If this setting is set to the number 60, Mawui will quietly visit the site every 60 minutes.

Windows Desktop has similar settings available and is shown below.

Once Mawui is started, it will quietly check your site for you. A notification will pop up alerting you if your website seems to be experiencing problems.

Mawui site is down notification

Mawui for Desktop Windows shows a similar alert.

Unlike opening a web browser and disrupting your workflow, Mawui runs in the background and only notifies you if something changes. When first installed, Mawui will verify that your site is online. After that, no news is good news. It's a perfect way to monitor your investment.

Mawui notifies site is online

On Desktop Windows, an online alert is also shown.

Since notifications should be very infrequent on a reliable site/host, you may ocasionally want to check that Mawui is working. Upon opening, the last status and last time it ran will display. Below are the application's three states.

Mawui site is online Mawui site is down notification Mawui site status is unknown

Mawui uses the system tray on windows and will display an icon for status. Right clicking the icon will reveal further options.
