This guy reached out via email and asked if he can get one account for his open source project 🙌
I checked it out and it was a discord management bot project being used by Discord community owners. 📑
He seems to be exploring it at the moment, and I'll gather feedback soon after 🏁
It's only 2 weeks after, but Hosted Status Page got featured on BetaList 🥳 🙌
Anyone willing to share some love can do so here: https://betalist.com/startups/hosted-status-page ❤
6th of June was the date when it was on their home page.
not an actual order of events, just a random recap
Hopefully, I'll be writing at least one article per week (on HSP blog) ☺
Search Engines (search string "Hosted Status Page"):
I believe this is due to the domain itself: Hosted Status Page ~ HostedStatus.Page 😁
I forgot something for sure, but that must be the most important stuff.
Sorry for long post!
It's been a week since I posted about switching to the Open Startup concept. 😊
It's also been a few days since HSP has been listed and featured on the Open Startup List in both navbar and the Guide! 🤯
Bragging aside, there are lots of small fixes "under the hood", but as always - Check them out in public Changelog if you like 😀
I decided that HSP should join the Open Startups 😊✨🎈
This means that you can check out HSP's expenses, profit, MRR, active users, paying customers, etc.
The data is currently sort of incomplete and draft, but will be precise and ready within few days. 🛠

0th Paying Customer 🤨
It's me! 🤫
Yes, I am paying for my own product. I can't consider myself as the 1st HSP paying customer as the seat is reserved for you, but I do believe every maker should be doing this.
It's not myself who got the idea - I saw it on some guy's GitHub "My stack" list. Unfortunately, I can't remember which one is it. Anyways, kudos to him 🙌
I decided to give away Starter plan for free for all of you who have Covid-19 related projects, or to those who fought it or provide help or support in any way to those who need it. 💕
If you feel like having one, head straight to Covid-19 page on Hosted Status Page and get yours for free 🐱👤
Domain name purchasing is as addictive as coffee 😂
Those who own at least one know about the struggle whether to buy some more or to resist the urge!
I didn't resist it though 🤦♂️ So, I purchased two more. One which is really short (sp.fyi - [S]tatus [P]age) and another one to use for... I guess I'll figure it out😁
So, HSP now uses:
The idea came up together with Upti, my other side project.
Since Upti is about uptime monitoring, it somewhat came naturally that I need another thing - the status page, where gathered data will be publicly displayed.
Besides displaying detected incidents, users are able to publish and schedule their own (manually) incidents.
More things are yet to come 😄
Hosted Status Page is a tool for product owners, developers, teams or startups that informs their audience about any service related incidents with ease.
It also includes an Automated Downtime Detection.
