Here are 7 Free online ping test tools that you can use to ping any website or server. A good use of an online ping test is to check availability of your server, in case you are not able to ping directly from your computer using Windows ping command.
I was earlier trying to ping my server, and the request was getting timed out. However, my web host claimed that the server is up, and my PC’s IP is being blocked by firewall of my server. However, then I tried a few of these online ping tools, and they also failed, and then my host fixed the problem.
