How to Ping a Remote Computer or a Website

Pinging a computer or a website allows you to find out whether it is online or how long it takes to respond to your request.

Ping works from a shell prompt.

Steps to ping in Windows 10:

  • Open Command Promt or Windows Powershell.
  • Type ping ip_address. For example:
    • ping 172.217.194.101
    • ping google.com
  • Use ping -t if you want to continuously ping the IP.
    • ping -t google.com
