Fast Link Checker is a tool used for searching sites for broken links. It begins checking from the starting page and goes through all pages one by one until it checks all links on the site. If Fast Link Checker finds a broken link, it shows its position in the document, the cause why it does not work and a hint how it can be fixed. Fast Link Checker can check links to all pages both on current and external sites, the availability of documents, images, scripts, style sheets and other objects linked to pages. It can check links on the entire site, on one of its pages or in one directory. Fast Link Checker can check links in files available via the HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and RTSP protocols on sites hosted by any properly configured web server. Furthermore, Fast Link Checker supports password-protected sites and FILE protocol, which allows checking link in HTML files without accessing a web server.
To achieve highest performance Fast Link Checker uses a unique multi-threaded algorithm, which allows checking several links at a time. This algorithm minimizes checking time and scanning a large site becomes faster.
Fast Link Checker comes with a full featured console tool that works even faster because it does not need to support user interface. The console tool can produce checking reports as a file or send them by e-mail. This allows installing console tool on a web server to perform automated checks and e-mail reports to let the administrator know if a broken link appears on the site.
Fast Link Checker provides variety of report types, including export links in html, Excel and text formats, export links as they appear in the broken link section of the program, export links in table view with customizable columns and sorting. Filtering allows exporting only selected types of links, for example, only links that report certain error can be exported. Also Fast Link Checker can generate and export a Site Map for scanned site.
