How to set up Never Go Down

Overview

We install Edgy to ensure our website never goes offline again for visitors when our server becomes unresponsive.

Never Go Down activates when requests to your website fail. While active, Edgy sends notifications to let you know your site is unresponsive while displaying a template of your choice to let visitors know you're still there.

Additional Notes

Edgy renders the Never Go Down Template when your server responds with any of the following status codes: 502, 503, 504, 520, 521, 522, 523, 524, 525, 526, 527, 530.

Step 1
