2. Monitis adds a monitoring node in Denmark
Monitis has just added its 17th monitoring node in Denmark to bring 24/7 robust monitoring to companies with customers and viewership in Denmark. To monitor your site from the new node, simply sign up for a Monitis account and add an external monitor. The Denmark checkbox should appear.

3. Server side caching: a great way to speed up your site! (Joomla and WordPress optimization experience)
Website visitors are impatient. If your page doesn’t load, they will go elsewhere. A study by Amazon shows that even a slight 100ms increase in load times will reduce sales by millions of dollars. One way to achieve decreases in response time is server side caching. Monitis recently implemented this plugin on its main website and blog, which run on Joomla and WordPress CMS, respectively. This post describes the process and shows the improvement it caused.

4. New! Cloud-based MySQL Database Monitoring from Monitis

The MySQL monitor includes 246 monitoring variables and more than 21 different metrics to provide one of the easiest to use, yet comprehensive database monitoring tools available. This post introduces the product and shows how it will appear in your dashboard.

5. New Monitis MySQL Monitoring Tool’s Video
Monitis has released a video to announce the launch of its revolutionary cloud-based MySQL monitoring. It shows why MySQL monitoring is so important beyond basic http and ping checks. Many popular Content Management Systems, like Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, and MediaWiki are based on MySQL, so monitoring and improving MySQL performance can have a dramatic impact for millions of websites.
