Are there any tools to periodically check if a web site is available?

I am a developer and I work on a large list of internal websites and want to know if they are down before the user calls me. I've used services like before, but they won't work with internal sites that they can't access or that are HTTPS only websites.

Is there a free tool that will monitor websites for me or is there a code project that I can modify to fit my needs?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There's a project called Cacti that is flexible enough for your needs. Their forums are a wealth of information and I'm pretty sure someone probably already has a solution for it there. It may be overkill, but it's a good starting point.
