|Tracer route and DNS-lookup
Doing a Tracer Route on a web site "domain name or DNS numbers", can show you how the servers are connected to the Internet and the "speed".
From the start button go to ether "run" or programs - MS-dos Prompt, (we recommend MS-Dos Prompt, it will keep the window open after you run tracert.exe) Type in tracert.exe followed with a space then the domain name or DNS numbers of the web site your checking. This will do a trace from your computer through your dial-up ISP to the web site.
What you will notice first is all the "hops" or servers you have to go through to get to the site, of course the lower the number of hops the quicker the site. But what is most important in the ms. (milliseconds), through each of the servers, pay attention to this, the lower the number the faster the web site,
Numbers from100-199 good, from 200-299 fair, 300-399 not good, 400 and above bad, if you see high numbers right from the first or second its your ISP and this will throw off the rest of the numbers.
You can also download shareware programs called VisualRoute, or NetInfo with a map of the world that shows the route your taking.
By performing a DNS look-up you can see who the owner is for the domain name.
Go to http://domain.rshweb.com
Type in the domain name or DNS numbers and hit enter, you can also find out if a domain name you desire is already in use, find contact names, e-mail addresses, postal addresses, and telephone numbers. The last entry will show who it is registered to, and the DNS numbers.
