    Pls check my ping request - is this ok?

    My site monitoring service keeps saying that the site is constantly up and down. Godaddy, the hosting, say that there is no problem and likely it is their firewall blocking the ping requests....

    To put my mind at ease I did the following via my command prompt in windows:

    Can you let me know if the messages and hints are all ok?

    You will not likely find this reply all that helpful. Not sure what I can tell you in regards to the traceroute...I just probably don't know all there is to know about them. If the traceroute is successful though, and it appears to be...the site is up. I would keep an eye on Godaddy though. I had several domains hosted with them and I found their hosting unreliable at best. After several months of trading emails with their customer support, and never really seeing any increase in up-time, I finally got fed up enough that I put together a small server machine and am now hosting my own domains. The machine utilizes SSD's and was just pieced together from some LGA 1366 components I had. While the design is not ideal for a server machine...with the i7 stock cooler, and an old GTX 270 I dedicate to folding, it is more or less a space heater. I have seen much better up-time than I was getting with Godaddy, and page load times have decreased exponentially. Learning Apache, and the security has taken some work, but all around I am pretty pleased with the result.
