Server crashes, site maintenance and traffic surges are among the reasons why your favourite site may be down. Regardless of origin, all you're left with is a broken link. Notify Mee can help.
While sites like previously mentioned Down For Everyone Or Just Me? can help to determine if the problem is on your end or if the problem rests with the site you're trying to access, just enter the afflicted web site's URL or any other link you're trying to reach and include your email so that Notify Mee can inform you when the site is up and running again. If the problem is on your end, Notify Mee will skip the email and let you know that the site is working fine.
More and more commonly we're noticing that sites we feature on Lifehacker aren't quite ready for the traffic our eager readers supply, so this service seems especially useful in situations where a site is down for a prolonged period of time and constantly checking its status becomes frustrating.
