Traceroute is a computer network tool used to show the route taken by packets of information sent across an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

If you are running Windows based computer, you can perform a traceroute using the Command Prompt.

  2. The Command Prompt is shown as below:
  3. Command Prompt CMD
  4. In this screen type: "tracert PassionateAboutIT.net" (without quotations, and replace PassionateAboutIT.net with your domain name) and press Enter.
