How does Montastic checks a website / URL?

Montastic tries first fetching the URL using `HTTP HEAD` request. This is to get the header of the URL. If this fails then it requests again with a GET request. If this fails as well then it does a double check with another Montastic robot. If the double check confirms the issue then it sends an alert.

In case a content keyword verification is set then Montastic uses a `HTTP GET` requests to download the content of the URL and verify it.


When a site is working OK, the timeout is 30 secs. When the site is down, the timeout is reduced to 10 seconds.
