Select monitor group from the Select Monitor Group combo box. You can also create a new monitor group by clicking on the Add a new Group.

Set the monitoring frequency for your website. By default, the check interval is set 1 min. Move the stepped slider under Check Interval (min) to increase the check interval.

Select the locations you want your website to be monitored from by checking the boxes next to the location names under Monitoring Locations.

Note: the set monitoring frequency and the selected locations will apply to all your Uptime Monitors created in bulk here. You can change it at any time later by opening the context menu of your monitor and selecting Settings.

You can set monitoring frequency here separately for each location chosen.

Note:  It is strongly recommended to alert only after a monitor has failed from at least two locations for all monitors using multiple locations.  This will reduce network noise.
