A few DotNetNuke versions ago, DNN Keep-A-Live was used regularly. At one time it was a Module that you would install to help with DNN Performance.

As a long time user with DNN, I've recently been tasked with installing and activating DNN Keep-a-live for DNN version 6.2.9 or possibly  upgrade to DNN 7.3.2 and use Keepalive there.
My Question,
Is DNN Keep-Live used anymore for versions 6.X or 7.X  or is there a module installed?

I have even read that you can ping your site via www.yourdomain.com/keepalive.aspx 
Is this how Keep Alive is used for DNN now?
How would I implement keepalive daily without having to always hit /keepalive.aspx ? and what are the best practices for DNN Keep Alive?

Please advise.

If you have traffic to your site it will stay alive anyway.

If you have no traffic you might argue "Who cares?" If you are on IIS 7 then I'd go for IIS preload

Keep alive is necessary for sites on shared hosting/shared servers, which are configured to unload a website, after 20 minutes of no activity (IIS default).
On your own server, it is advisable to recycle on specific times of the day and/or resource utilization as well as using a monitoring service to check the site every couple of minutes and notify the admin(s).

The best way I have found to keep a site alive is to use an external monitoring service.  You can find some great services like https://www.pingdom.com/free/ which will not only keep your site alive, but can also notify you of any outages.

Thank you Joe Brinkman for your comment!

Based on your comment I created a Windows Service that I installed on my Server which basically calls my webpage once every three minutes; that way my page is always alive and loads super fast!

Let me know if anybody (with a Windows Server) is interested on the Windows Service I created and I can post a download link along with instructions on how to configure it...
