Online Ping Tool

This tool Pings a server (domain or IP) and shows you the results. If any packets are dropped, you will find out here.

(The pings may take a few seconds...)

Ping is a computer network administration utility to test the reachability of a server. In addition to response times, IT Tools like these also show you information about the IP address and server that a website is hosted on. So it's also a simple way to find out what is the IP address of a domain or server.

Response times under 200ms are usually good enough for general internet browsing (100ms if the server is in the same country). For servers on another continent, 200 to 400 ms is adequate, depending on the distance & path data has to travel (see our traceroute tool). From 400 ms and upwards, browsing will still work but feel a bit slow.

For online gaming, a speed around 100ms or less should be OK - over LAN/Ethernet, you should reach speeds around 30-40 ms easily.

Phasing out hosting server after (almost) 10 years

After having been running steadily on the previous server for almost ten(!) years, it became time to retire that machine. So, ManyTools has now been moved to a shiny new hosting cluster. You may/should notice some speed improvements. In case you notice any problems or irregularities I'd be happy if you notify me so I can check on them.

Exit Coinhive (in-browser bitcoin mining)

Thank you for your feedback on our (brief) test with browser based bitcoin mining. This seemed like a nice way to support this website, but turned out to be far too much of a burden to our visitors. So we've decided to remove it. Our apologies for the inconvenience it has caused.

Migrated to HTTPS

Happy to inform that Manytools is now fully Chrome-62-ready, thanks Google! A secure connection had been due for a very long time. Today we finally got around to upgrading the site to run on HTTPS. – (Starting October 2017, Chrome (version 62) will show a “NOT SECURE” warning when users enter text in a form on an HTTP page, and for all HTTP pages in Incognito mode.)
