Put content below into a file called testurl.sh, followed by a chmod u+x testurl.sh

It works, I have tried it

#!/bin/bash
lynx -dump -stderr -connect_timeout=3 http://yout_url_2_test 2> /dev/stdout | grep -i "Unable to connect to remote host" && mail -s "warning" your_email_address <<"EOF"
test failure
EOF
