How to Ping Wikidot

note — Apr 5, 2010, pings to wikidot time out — not sure why. This method still shows wikidot's current IP.

If you're looking to set up a custom domain and are having problems resolving your new domain to your Wikidot site, you can ping Wikidot to see if it is a problem with your server, or if there's a problem somewhere along the line as the connection travels from your computer's internet access through to Wikidot.

Here's how to Ping

  • From the desktop, click start
  • Select Run
  • In the Run box, type command
  • Click OK
  • The DOS window will pop up. At the C:\> prompt type ping and press enter.
  • You'll see some results pass through the screen.
  • It'll tell you if there were any packets lost in the transfer (0% loss is what you want to see).
  • It'll also tell you the average speed, in milliseconds.
  • It should show Wikidot's current IP number ( as of Apr 5, 2010).

To close the DOS window, type exit at the C:\> prompt and press enter.
