Being able to permanently monitor the availability of a server is highly beneficial, even if you aren’t a webmaster or server administrator. Advanced Host Monitor is a powerful tool that will assist you with this task.

With Advanced Host Monitor you will be able to monitor the availability of any server or domain address that you desire. What’s even better is that you can do it continuously or schedule tests to occur even when you are not at the computer.

One of the things that I really like about Advanced Host Monitor is that it allows you to create multiple profiles, each with its own settings and monitored websites. This is great, as it allows multiple users to efficiently share a computer.

Another plus for this application is that it will help you use the trace route function for websites and IP addresses, in order to find out where they originate from and the hops that they go through. Furthermore, the IP Monitor that the program embeds can also come in very handy.

Although Advanced Host Monitor doesn’t have the best graphical interface that you have ever used, you can still find a lot of positive things in this area. For starters, the application can be minimized to the system tray so it won’t get in your way. Moreover, the color scheme is fully customizable, so you can easily adapt the program to your own work style.

Personally, I think that Advanced Host Monitor is an efficient program that you will surely find very useful. This feature-rich application is definitely worth its price.
