Hi @LPTechs, This is a web hosting section, no a networking one. So, we'd better discuss server side web hosting issues that any issues that someone might have with their internet connection. The above examples might help someone to see the route from their home, office or other internet point to certain IP or network, but it does not give a full picture of the network and would not prove any network issues on the web host where certain website, app or anything else is hosted.

To be honest you keep posting these how too's that are not relevant. You keep missing the point of these forums. Find a thread that is requesting help then help. I find it irritating
