Free SSL Certificates for Public Status Reports

We’ve added a free ACME SSL provider integration to our Status Reports so your public status pages can be accessed on TLS-secure URLs.

NodePing public status reports provide a visible indicator of your website and service status and you can set those reports to be accessible to any subdomain you control. It’s easy to have your status page show up on You need only add the custom domain to your public report and set a DNS record.

Now with free SSL certs from Let’s Encrypt™, just by setting one additional CNAME record in your DNS, you can also have your public status pages show up on TLS-secure URLs like

Detailed instructions about adding SSL to your public status report is available in our documentation.

The new SSL certs are available to both ‘Professional’ and ‘Premiere’ accounts.

Compact View for Status Reports

When we released our new status reporting recently one of the first requests was for a compact view of checks on the report.  People wanted a view that would put a list of checks statuses on the screen all at once.  So we’re happy to be releasing a more compact view of the list of checks on the report.

The new “compact” view can be turned on in the “Checks” section of the report configuration  The layout uses a table, so some of the features of the standard view (like setting the sort order) aren’t relevant to the table based view.  However, you can still pick what uptime metrics to show.  If you pick an uptime display that has more than four or five columns, you will likely want to adjust the display width of the report.  How to do that is discussed on our Report Styling page in the documentation.  

Our old status reporting showed seven days and thirty days of uptime, which wasn’t included in the first release of the new report.  In addition to the compact view, we’re also adding the seven+thirty uptime view.  It’s also available in the Checks section of the status report configuration, as well as in the Uptime section of the configuration for individual check status pages.

Both of these enhancements to the report were in direct response to feedback we got from customers on the new reporting.  There are more enhancements coming as well.  We listen to feedback, and base many of our decisions on future enhancements on what our customers are requesting.  So please let us know what is important to how you use our monitoring tools.

And if you don’t use NodePing yet, the best thing to do is get started with a free, 15-day trial.
