API limitations of the free Uptime Robot plan

Uptime Robot has recently reduced the limit to only 10 requests per minute. Requests include not only creating new monitors through the MainWP extension but also fetching information about existing monitors. Thus, reaching the limit is fairly easy for a large number of sites.

This limit is most often hit when creating monitors for all sites by clicking the appropriate button, “Create Monitors for All Sites” in the UI.

You will likely be able to create 2 or 3 monitors per attempt and receive an error (red exclamation mark) for other sites because the API limit will be reached.Create Uptime Robot API Key 1
