Tool: Where is My Domain Name Routing?

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – When troubleshooting a website issue, if you were to start at step 1, it would be checking to make sure that your domain name is registered and that the DNS is routing your domain name to the correct web server.

When checking the routing of a domain name, most professionals use tools such as dig / ping / tracert. For the average user that does not perform this type of test on a regular basis, connecting the dots to see how a domain name is routing can be quite difficult.

To help everyone, InMotion Hosting created a tool that performs the necessary lookups that check where a domain name is routing, and it graphically displays this information for easy review.
