Are Our Servers Quick Enough? Ping Us And See!
Our goal to have one of the fastest hosting services in the UK. At the moment a ping test using the windows command tool and pinging poweredbypenguins.co.uk reveals that our servers serve up our site at a average time of 59ms.
Today when i pinged google.com it had a load time of 69ms, so not bad when going against the big boys.
Why not try it yourself? ping your current host and see how fast they serve their sites….
- Goto Start – Bottom left of your screen and type cmd in the “Search Programs and Files”
- A program called CMD should be listed, open it
- Type in “ping whateverdomain.com”
- This will send 4 packets of information to the address and see how long it takes to reply to your request.
This will give a good indication of the distance between you and your documents being served on the web.
