Ping Test From Multiple Locations Review
Ping test websites, servers and network speed from over 20 locations around the world. The dotcom-monitor instant ping test sends ICMP packets to the host and measures response time and logs any errors that occur.
Ping Speed Test
Our free ping test allows you to check the response time of websites and servers from dozens of locations around the world.
The pingtest works by sending ICMP packets to the specified host address to measure response times and detect errors from 20+ monitoring locations, giving you a global view of the host’s availability and performance on the internet.
After sending the packets, the ping test reports back the duration of each ICMP ping request along with a status of the request (success or failure). If the status of the ping is a failure, the system reports back an error code and an error description (such as a DNS error with an error code of 12007).
Both the ping test and the traceroute tools are online versions of commonly used desktop troubleshooting tools. The difference between the desktop tools and these online pingtest tools is that you can run a ping test directly within your browser, and the test will be performed from all of the above listed locations simultaneously. This gives you an external view of your website and server response time. With an external view, you can easily identify potential problem areas that may be experiencing errors or other issues.
