How do I run and ping to a website? I can't access one of my favorite websites, but it works for others.?
I have tried alot of things.
-Used a Proxy, just in case I was IP banned, I wouldn't think so, since I am a moderator there.
-Used all three of my browsers, FireFox, Opera and Internet Explorer
-Been waiting for several hours now
-And it seems, I am the only one having this problem at the moment.
-So I am trying to use the ping function, but I am still unsure how to use it.

Go to start -> run, type in 'cmd' (without the quotes) and click ok. If that doesn't work, try typing 'command'. This should bring up a black box.
To try pinging the website, type in 'ping websitename' (such as 'ping www.google.com'). You will get either:
Could not find host - it cannot find the host at all, keep reading
Request timed out - the ping was not returned
Reply from - you got a reply from the website
If you got could not find host or a no reply, try this command: 'nslookup websitename'. You will get an answer section or a can't find. If you get can't find, try 'nslookup websitename 18.104.22.168'. The 22.214.171.124 is a public DNS server. If you get an answer there, your DNS server (Maybe your ISPs) don't have an entry for that website. Try an 'ipconfig /flushdns' to reload your DNS cache and see if that helps.
If you get a reply from the ping, try running anti-spyware, anti-virus scans, or just try rebooting the PC.
Note: type all commands without the quotes and replace websitename with the name of the website.

If you are the only one then there is a problem with your network or computer.
but in the command line (cmd) the command is ping then the url or ip
you can also do a tracert
