Does Url guard use only "PING"?

I would be interested in knowing the way Url Guard service does works.

Does it either "ping" server as well, or it uses something else (like HTTP response)?

Thank you very much in advance for attention.

Hi Davide,

It uses http request / response. Ping (I mean the ping protocol) cannot be used for watching web

sites - you can have multiple sites on single web server and the fact that web server responses to ping calls

doesn't mean that your web application is healthy and running.
