I need some way of checking to see if my website is up and if other people can get to it. I can always get to it because the server is on my computer. But how can I make sure other people will be able to get to it before I start linking people to it?

Ok but it's stupid and it's really only meant for a certain group of people. So don't laugh. (Assuming you can even get to it.) It's

You could also find a web proxy server and request the url through the proxy.

Ask the people who you intend to view it to look at it on their computers.

Have a friend put an image on their website that is an absolute reference to
a file on your website ... example:

Pretend your site is called www.digger.com, and you have an image
stored on your website called /images/test.jpg

Your friend would put this somewhere on their website:
<img src="http://www.digger.com/images/test.jpg">

If you viewed their website and the image was there, your site
would be active and available. If your server was down, the image
would be a box with an 'x' in it.

I see you're a regular on this forum.
If you PM me with your URL, I can create a special secret
page on my website that "pings" your URL and displays an
"active" (or "not active") message.

Using PHP scripting.
