How do I run a ping on my computer?

A ping is a basic network test that checks the connectivity of a network. If you are experiencing connectivity issues to your website, a good starting point is to ping your website.

To run a ping:

1. On the start menu type in 'Command Prompt' or simply 'cmd' on your search function. Click the application, and a black window should appear.
2. Type in the command 'ping' followed by a space, then the url of your website, which should be in the format [].
3. If the ping works, it should say 'Reply from [ipaddress]: bytes=xx time=xms TTL=xx'. Press ctrl-c to stop the ping. If the ping doesn't work, it will halt, and then say 'Request timed out'.
