We usually recommend selecting 6-8 monitoring locations for each of your monitored website or service. These are more than enough to determine whether or not your website/service is experiencing a downtime.

As explained in this documentation article (link), our system checks from all selected locations simultaneously, so you should be cautious not to select too many locations per monitored website/service, as to not overload it, or get our monitoring IPs blocked in the server’s firewall (which can then generate false positives for your monitors).

 

We offer multiple location, so you will have options where to choose from, not necessarily to select all of these for each of your uptime monitor.
