Posted by H9 Admin on 17 March 2015 02:55 PM

The PING command is used to test the connection and latency between two network connections. The PING command sends packets of information to a specified IP Address and then measures the time it takes to get a response from the specified computer or device, so you can do things like check to make sure your domain is resolving to the same IP as your account is assigned to. To get your 'ping' on, choose your operating system below and let 'er rip.
