About Ping Pro:
This pro online ping tool return ping result from Linux server. You can choose how much time to ping a domain name, and the interval between two ping query.
Ping with or without www prefix?
Notice: You need to ping with
www prefix for some (not common) domains such as
www.quora.com. If you have no luck with your query, try to add
the front and try again. This happens because of how the domain owners set up the DNS.
Have you ever stuck long delay in a Skype conversation? Have you ever frustrated about the latency during a online game session? You definitely should test the Internet delay time from your home to the website.
Ping calculates the round-trip time (from you click a link to the content return from web server) from your home to any web server with a public IP address or a domain name. It also tells you how many packets has been transmitted, how many packets has been received, and how many packets has been loss.
For online gaming, the ping latency to the game server should be kept under
100ms, it will be unbearable if the ping latency is over
200ms. For regular web browsing activities, the ping
latency has less effect on
user experience. You should keep in mind, ping latency and Internet speed is
2 different concept, high latency doesn't mean you are stuck at
480p resolution Netflix streaming, although
they are often found
There are a few ways to lower your home's ping latency, the heavy Internet traffic has negative effect on ping latency, so Internet is faster and has lower package loss rate at night compare to daytime. A more fundamental strategy is to switch your ISP (Internet service provider).
