Why check your website availability from different countries?

It's important to test the availability of your website from different countries because your site may be fast in one part of the world but slow or unavailable elsewhere. For example, suppose your website is hosted on different servers in different locations using a smart CDN. In that case, the content will come from the server closest to the user to ensure the best experience. Each server may have a different connection and return another status code. By testing your website from multiple locations, we make sure it's reachable everywhere. Semonto checks your website's availability from servers in different places.
