Dominder – Website Management & Control

Websites don’t just run themselves. From un-renewed domains to hosting problems and security loopholes, there are hundreds of reasons why a website could go down for an hour, a day, or even longer. Dominder is an application that releases the burden from busy website publishers, taking control over behind-the-scenes maintenance tasks so its users can focus on the content they put up.

Take the first step in preventing your website from going down by entering your domain on the Dominder site. Registering for the service takes just 20 seconds, after which Dominder will begin collecting your registration information and taking a screenshot of your site. Screenshots are automatically taken on a monthly basis, as a way to track the changes that occur on a site over time. In addition to tracking these changes so you don’t have to, Dominder can also monitor your website on a 24/7 basis. The platform checks for site performance once every three minutes, and notifies you immediately via SMS or email if something has gone awry. It also lets you know if your site has popped up on any “black lists,” a common occurrence when websites have been infected with malware without the publisher’s knowledge.

Rather than relying on an Excel file to track the income and expenses related to your website, you can use Dominder. This data is then stored in the cloud, backed up periodically, and accessible from any computer or smartphone. Dominder also serves as a reminder service, of sorts, emailing you one month before the expiration of your domains or hosting plans.

Practical Uses:

  • Receive a text message in the event your website goes down
  • Get a reminder to renew your domain each year
  • Find out if your website has been infected with malware
  • Keep track of all income and expenses related to your website

Insider Tips:

  • Site conditions are monitored every three, five, 10, and 60 minutes
  • Notes that users create with Dominder can be exported
  • Dominder gathers information on all added domains once each week
  • Reminders about expiring domains can be sent to multiple email addresses

What we liked:

  • Dominder takes the burden of managing a website off of busy publishers
  • People are less likely to forget to renew their domains when they use Dominder
  • All information saved on Dominder is available from any computer or smartphone
  • Dominder quickly identifies issues with malware to decrease overall downtime

What we didn’t like:

  • Although users get 5 free SMS credits when signing up, they have to pay extra to receive additional SMS notifications
