Hosted Status Pages

You can create a status page if you’d like to share your monitoring data with the general public or share it privately with your colleagues.

Loadster hosts these status pages for you, and keeps them updated in real time with the latest monitoring data.

Public & Private Status Pages

Technically, there’s not much difference between a public and a private status page.

If you intend for your status page to be public you can give it a friendly identifier, like your company’s name or domain. You can even use a custom subdomain like to host your status page (see below).

If you want your status page to be private, give it a long random identifier that nobody will be able to guess. That way only people you’ve shared the link with can access the status page. Loadster generates an 11-character alphanumeric string by default, which would require quadrillions of guesses, but you can make up an even longer one if you prefer.

Status Page Setup & Customization

To create or customize a status page, go to Status Pages. Click on the add button or an existing status page’s edit button to open the status page drawer, where you can configure that status page.

Choosing a status page identifier

Every status page must have a globally unique identifier that becomes part of its URL. You can choose the page’s identifier or stick with the randomly generated one.

If you want your status page to be private, make sure to use a long random string that is extremely difficult to guess. That way, only people who you’ve shared the link with will be able to view it.

If you want your status page to be public, you can choose a more friendly string as the identifier, like your company name in all lowercase. You can even use a custom subdomain format like as the identifier if you intend to point your DNS at the status page (see below).

Customizing your status page

Enter your custom Title, Link, and Email that will appear at the top of your status page, so viewers know who to get in touch with if they have questions. All of these are optional but recommended.

Your status page can have a range of either 30 or 7 days, depending on how much monitor history you want viewers to see. This rolling range will also be used for the uptime and error rate statistics that appear on the status page.

You can choose which of your monitors should appear on the status page. If you have monitors that you don’t want the viewers of the status page to see, deselect them here and they won’t show up.

Enabling and disabling status pages

If you want to bring a status page offline temporarily, you can disable it without losing the configuration. Simply re-enable it later when you want it to be available again.

Custom Status Page Domains

If you want your status page to have a friendly URL like, you can use the subdomain like as the status page’s identifier (see above).

Once the status page is created with that identifier, you’ll need to create a DNS CNAME record pointing your custom subdomain to This will ensure that your custom subdomain resolve to the status page hosted by Loadster.


You’ll only be able to do this if you control the DNS for the domain, or can work with someone who does. The exact steps for adding a CNAME entry depend on your DNS provider.

Once your DNS CNAME record is set up, you can add a friendly link to your status page in your site’s footer or anywhere else you want people to be able to find the status page.

Using a custom subdomain for your status page is totally optional. If you don’t set one up, your status page will still work fine with a path-based URL.
