Take A Look At What OffsiteStatus Can Do For You
System Status Page
Your system status page is the site your customers will go to when your site is acting up. It provides them with a realtime view of your system status and will reassure them that you are working on the issue.
When your site is having an issue you'll simply visit your system status admin page or leverage the OffsiteStatus API to post a status update. You should continue to update your status blog every 30-60 minutes until your system is running normally again.
There are four distinct status levels your system can be in at any given time:
Fully Operational - the default status meaning everything is running
Minor Interruption - to be used when your site is operational, but one aspect may not be functioning correctly
Major Interruption - should be used when the site is not available to your customers
Scheduled Maintenance - automatically turned on/off for scheduled maintenance windows
