    Can anyone recommended or help me find a service to which I can send messages from my server so that they are texted to a list of phone numbers. I am looking for some kind of subscription service I guess.

    I have used Unialert to alert me when the server is not responding but this obviously works in the wrong direction.

    I'd like to set up a script on my server that tells me if there have been no orders for 2 hours by texting me that information.

    If you have physical control over your server then you can user a GSM modem or phone with kannel sms gateway.

    If your dont ie u are running on shared hosting then you can use any of the online services i would recommend http://www.clickatell.com/

    Yeah, the dedicated is rented at a datacentre so the 2nd option looks sweet.

    cheers.
