FAQs

What is the DubBot Uptime testing IP?

The static IP for the Uptime Monitoring is 52.39.13.97.

What is an HTTP status 200?

This means that your website is available to website visitors and is responding as expected.

What are HTTP status codes that indicate an issue with my website?

Typically, 404 and 500 status codes indicate an issue with your website being able to be accessed by website visitors.

What should I do if I get an issue status code?

Many times the server will experience a change in status during maintenance windows. If you are in a known maintenance window, you should be alerted to the change back to 200 once your website is back to being available. If you are not a server administrator, reaching out to a website administrator is your first step.
