Online Ping Test is a small networking utility tool that can be used to ping a website, a remote host, server, and other devices.
How To Use:
To check if the website is up or down, please do the following:
Set the target hostname, domain name or IP address.
Press the ping button.
Our Online Ping Test Tool:
Our ping tool uses a TCP packet to check the current status of the target device. we are working on an ICMP ping tool to replace this one.
Original Ping tool:
Ping uses the ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) protocol to send an echo package to the target machine. Then it measures the round-trip time that this package is travel. The time it travels from the originating host to a target computer that is echoed back to the source aka ping-pong.
It then repeats this loop 3 times in default and calculates all the info it gets to output the answer. There is an option to do a continuous ping, which Means it will continue to look till someone stops it.
Ping command tool:
The ping command in the operating system can be used to check for 2 things(among other options that it has):
1. If the target system is up.
2. How long is it take to get an answer from the target system?
Please refer to the Ping article for more information about the pingcommand (under Microsoft Windows).
