  • Looking for Statuscake alternative?

Pulsetic vs Statuscake: the breakdown

Think about the last time your website went down. What if you’d never found out about it? You could have lost your all-important brand trust - and customers for life. You need to be the first to know.

That’s why Pulsetic monitors your uptime from 15 locations around the world, giving you and your customers beautiful, real-time updates in every language.

But there’s another reason people looking for an Statuscake alternative come to Pulsetic: the functionality you get for your money.

Let’s compare the two.

  • Beautiful status badges

    Beautiful status badges

    Unlike Statuscake, Pulsetic gives you white labeled badges showing your service availability in real time - on any page you like. You can customize your badge using your brand colors, fonts, symbols, text, and backgrounds. And if you need more freedom to make it yours, you can use Custom CSS instead.

  • Beautiful status badges

    30 second uptime checks 

    On the cheapest paid plan, Statuscake checks things are OK every minute. With Pulsetic, you can know about an incident within 30 seconds, for a fraction of the cost. If you want to, though, you can also space out the intervals between checks.

  • Support for every language 

    Support for every language

    Statuscake works in English - and only English. The world’s 6 billion people who don’t speak English need a Statuscake alternative. Pulsetic, on the other hand, supports every language on earth: from Spanish to Swahili. So wherever your customers are, you can let them know what’s happening.

    “Pulsetic helps us monitor all of our websites and webapps over at Pairing.dev. Before we used it, we had no idea how often services (e.g. heroku) were offline. Now we have complete control over it.
    Also, what helps is the keyword feature. That helps us from a website being online but showing bogus content (e.g. a static site that compiled wrong). Pulsetic is a great solution with impeccable UX. Super easy to use and does the job well.”

Pricing: Pulsetic vs Statuscake

With Statuscake, you need two plans: one for your uptime monitoring, and a second plan for your status pages. That makes Pulsetic better value for money. You’ll get both features within one plan, for a lower overall price.

  • Free plans

    Statuscake comes with a free plan for uptime monitoring; it includes 10 monitors and tests every 5 minutes. But to publish the status pages you need to build trust in your brand, there isn’t a free option; the cheapest plan is $19.99/month. You get 1 status page and updates for 300 subscribers.
    Although Pulsetic’s free plan doesn’t include subscriber updates, it does include 10 monitors and unlimited status pages.

  • Starter plan

    As an alternative to Statuscake, On Pulsetic’s Starter plan ($9/month), you can also run tests every minute, monitor 50 sites or services, and white label your status pages.
    The big difference is the price; a similar plan with Statuscake costs $75/month when you add together the costs of your status page and your monitoring - while offering only 50% more monitors and subscriber updates. Overall, that makes Pulsetic’s starter plan better value for money.

  • Pro plan

    If you need to know what’s happening by voice call, Pulsetic’s Pro plan is the best Statuscake alternative. Even the $330/month Pro plan on Statuscake doesn’t offer voice call alerts.
    Pulsetic Pro, on the other hand, gives you 100 credits for SMS and voice call alerts, as well as 5,000 subscriber notifications - and it’s just $39/month. A tenth of the price.
