Shared Pages under custom domains

Every now and then we all have the need to share monitoring results with our clients, co-workers, partners, website visitors or other interested parties.

One of the most powerful features in Monitis is the ability to publish user-selected dashboards via a publicly accessible URL. This feature can be used to create customized real-time reporting pages that can be shared between multiple stakeholders without the need for log-in processes or additional accounts to be created. There are numerous ways in which this feature can be utilised, however these will be discussed in a separate post.

We have recently enhanced this feature by enabling our customers to publish these pages under their own domain. Monitis users can not only customize the URL, but can also change the logo on the shared page – creating a fully-branded page.

Our custom domain service delivers several benefits to end-users:

● Shared pages can be made an integral part of a company’s website. This is particularly useful for bloggers and journalists who want to create industry performance benchmark reports and connect them with their blogs.
● Clients will be impressed with a branded performance monitoring page as it shows that you are delivering value to their business.
● You can improve your SEO ranking with dynamic pages under your own domain, while making sure your visitors always return to you for real-time fresh content.
