Binding #Uptimerobot monitoring to your own subdomain: embarcaderomonitoring.wiert.me

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/01

Below a few screenshots on how to bind your own subdomain to a set of uptimerobot monitors.

This case is about [Archive.isembarcaderomonitoring.wiert.me, which I setup because of the not so well way that Embarcadero maintained their web facing infrastructure in the past.

The steps for that are really simple, assuming you already have an uptimerobot account and some monitor set-up. If you don’t: check out the first video (thanks onewebstreet!) linked below the fold, as it is a step-by-step introduction.

Steps for your own subdomain

If you like video more than a list of steps, check out the second video (thanks Kyle!) below the fold.

  1. Ensure you have a DNS CNAME record that points your subdomain (in my case embarcaderomonitoring.wiert.me) to stats.uptimerobot.com:

    Note that [Archive.is] stats.uptimerobot.com by itself will not display any dashboard, as it requires a CNAME to be involved that is registered in the Uptime robot Custom Domain list.

  2. Login to Uptime robot, which brings you to uptimerobot.com/dashboard#mainDashboard
  3. Click on settings, which brings you to uptimerobot.com/dashboard#mySettings
  4. Observe the “Disable RSS” (or “Enable RSS” if you have not yet enabled it) and the “this link” (which in my case points to this RSS feed [WayBack])
  5. Clicking on “show them” will get you something like this:
  6. Clicking on the pencil icon then will get you where you can set the “Custom Domain”, which notes

    Custom Domain

    (make sure you create a CNAME DNS record for your domain to stats.uptimerobot.com. And, it can take up to 30 mins for the custom domain to be activated.)

  7. Wait a while and check your CNAME for a valid Uptime robot status dashboard.
