#>./check_http --help

I get a very detailed summary of the plugin when that command is run. 
What version of nagios_plugins are you using?

Solution to your scenario:

#>./check_http -w 5 -c 10 www.yourdomain.com

This will output a STATUS_OK if www.yourdomain.com returns content in 
less than 5 seconds.  If it takes longer than 5 seconds to return 
content it returns a STATUS_WARNING, and a STATUS_CRITICAL if it takes 
longer than 10 seconds.

You can also throw a -S or --ssl in there if you want to check HTTPS.
