Reduce Website Bandwidth

Page monitoring services like ChangeDetect are popular. However the use of multiple page monitoring services by your website’s users increases bandwidth utilization for your website.

If you are subject to bandwidth limits imposed by your web host, then page monitoring bandwidth “hogging” could be a big problem that can cost you serious money. This is because some page monitoring services download content from your website over and over again. These redundant and unnecessary downloads slow down your server for real users on your website.
Introducing Bandwidth Friendly Page Monitoring from ChangeDetect

Webmasters reduce bandwidth usage for page monitoring requests by consolidating all page monitoring requests through ChangeDetect. This is a FREE service and consolidating page monitoring requests through ChangeDetect is bandwidth-friendly because:

  1. Consolidation eliminates redundant page monitoring requests initiated by web users who subscribe to multiple services from different companies.
  2. You, as webmaster, choose ChangeDetect which is an intelligent, well designed page monitor. ChangeDetect does not increase bandwidth usage, because ChangeDetect bundles page monitoring requests for the same page into only one request.
  3. With ChangeDetect, your webpage will not be downloaded over and over again in a single day.

ChangeDetect Once a Day

The ChangeDetect automated page monitor tool is a “good bot” (robot). No matter how many users monitor a single page on your website, your web server opens only one session per page. ChangeDetect runs only once a day (basic service) to monitor the page. Review the detailed example.

You can even receive a webpage statistics report of which of your web pages are being monitoring and by how many users.
