About this tool:

Ping Your IPv4 & IPv6 Address or a Domain

IP Ping tool sends a ping request to a domain, host, or IP and shows its response. This tool is handy if you want to check either a host is publicly accessible to everyone and responding correctly or not. The tool tests if a host computer that you are trying to access is operating or is accessible over the internet or not. It is also used for troubleshooting and to check the response time.

What is ping?

A ping is a data packet that is sent out to an IP address. That data packet is transmitted over the network's routers unless it reached its specific final IP address. On receiving the data packet, a ping device returns a response called pong. When the host that sent the response receives the pong, it can calculate the latency. If the host fails to receive the pong, request times out, the host gets an error message or a notification of data loss.

Ping is a utility that checks if an IP address or host is available over a network or not. 

  • It gives you a short window about the availability and response time between the two electronic devices. 
  • It sends ICMP packets to the host's IP address and waits for a response from each.
  • It verifies the reachability of a domain on the internet protocol (IP) network. 
  • Pinging certifies that the device is live, available, and performing networking operations at speed.

What is the purpose of pinging the IP address?

A ping test is used to check if the host is connected to a network or not. It checks whether the given URL or the host is online or offline and checks the delay between two computers. A ping test runs to a server to check the latency between the computer running the ping test and the server. The IP Ping service sends several ICMP packets to the domain or IP and returns the detailed output. It tells how many packets were transmitted and how many were lost during the ping activity.

Some internet speed tests also display the results of the ping. A good internet speed test tries to establish connections with three or four servers. The server with the lowest connection time is used to run the internet speed test.

How to use the IP ping test tool?

The process is simple. Perform the following steps

  • Open the IP Ping Test tool.
  • Enter the domain or IPv4 or IPv6 address and click on the "Ping Now" button.
  • It pings the provided domain or IP address and gives you the response. 

The result will help you in a variety of ways.

  • If you find no data loss, it means that your connection is secure and the IP is online.
  • If there is some data loss, it means that the device is suffering from some unreliable connection.
  • If a request is timed out, it means that the pinged IP address is either wrong or does not exist. Or maybe the IP is offline or device settings preventing it from giving a response on ping requests.

What is a good ping response time?

You can expect it to be fast, under 10 ms, and others to experience some lag. Whatever the distance between the two points, a response time over 100 ms could indicate that you are now in a problem.

To ping an IP is illegal?

Your IP address is pretty much public information like your street address or house address. Ping your IP address is not an illegal activity. But what some do with your IP can become unlawful.

It is OK to ping Google DNS?

Google does not bother if you ping them or their DNS server. Pinging Google or any other globally web-based server on the internet is fine. These servers get much traffic that will not notice the fewer pings.
