How to Ping Websites in Windows

Pinging is a useful tool to find out the IP address of targeted websites. Do note, however, that website IP addresses may be hidden in a variety of ways.

To ping a website in Windows:

Step 1: Click on the Start Menu button

Step 2: Type 'cmd' in the search bar and open the Command Prompt program.

Step 3: Type 'ping [website url]' into the command line. For example, if you wanted to ping the website '', you would type 'ping'.

Step 4: In the output, you will typically read four lines of 'reply from'. That's the IP address you wanted to find. Check that the packets sent and received tally; if so, then its a fully functioning website with a stable connection!
