Traceroute, ping and DNS tools of all flavors have been on the top of my mind the past few days and I think I've finally got everything in place - said with fingers crossed. As such, I though it might be good to share a few of the tools the experts use to identify problems and get your hosting account back on track if the need ever arises.
DNSstuff.com and DNSreport.com both provide helpful tools for testing domain names, IPs and hostnames. Certainly worth a look, definitely worth a bookmark. If you know of any others, please let us know and comment below.
