Website Monitoring now available in four major languages By David Leonhardt

One of the top website monitoring services in the world has announced that it's industry-leading network and website monitoring services can now be accessed in French, Spanish and German, as well as in the original English. Why this sudden interest in other languages?

"Many people in the English-speaking world think there is only one Internet - the English Internet," says Vadim Mazo, Chief Technology Officer for Dotcom-Monitor. "But there are vibrant communities popping up all over the world, each fully functional in its own language. And people in every country expect to be served as much as possible in their own language.

Dotcom-Monitor has recently expanded its services, which include website monitoring, network monitoring and load testing, into three new world languages:

- French is a major language in three European countries, parts of Canada and several smaller countries in the world.
- Spanish is spoken in most of the eastern hemisphere, even in increasing numbers in the United States.
- German is the business powerhouse language of Europe.

Mr. Mazo believes that every company needs to speak the language of its customers, and these are the languages that major Internet-using businesses are speaking.

An International Website Monitoring Network

To support these efforts, Dotcom-Monitor added a new station recently at Frankfurt to its monitoring network. It now has nine website monitoring stations around the world, including China, the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA, with more on the way.
Details about the Dotcom-Monitor network are available at:

Remote website monitoring helps owners respond quickly to emergencies (such as pages loading sluggishly or script failures), as well as to make long-term plans to accommodate growing traffic. For example, it is estimated that $20 to $40 billion is lost each year from users who abandon slow loading websites, and the smart owner wants to avoid that problem before it happens, regardless of what language he speaks.
