In the days of the Covid-19 lockdown in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. I have been working from home for the past 2 months. In my free time, I share how to create a status statistics page, although it seems quite new or there are paid packages with great features, but for personal needs I choose free services.

You can see my site demo at status.eplus.dev

You can register here

Enter the website address you need to track image

See the stats page we just created will have the format updown.io/xxxx . Example: updown.io/2yy9 Screenshot 2021-07-01 202037

Don't forget to make your page public Screenshot 2021-07-01 203150

Custom domain status page

In order to have your status page available under your own subdomain, you need to create a CNAME record from your subdomain to xxxx.status.updown.io (xxxx being your check token, visible in your status page URL).

For example, in order to direct status.example.com to updown.io/2yy9, you need to create a CNAME entry status.example.com pointing to 2yy9.status.updown.io. Example: status.eplus.dev

An SSL certificate will automatically be generated for your custom domains. Also, your status page must be PUBLIC, otherwise you'll get a 404.

Good luck
