Launched in 2019 and based in the Netherlands, UptimeMate provides simple-to-use website monitoring software-as-a-service directly to website owners, without the need for technical knowledge.

We’ll also be bundling the key features of UptimeMate into our growing portfolio of managed services, including PapaCare+. We want webmasters to know what’s happening with the performance of their websites at all times.”
