Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

11. What should I observe when using PING?

  1. Some Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) may incorrectly report our regular Ping Tests as "port scanning". Our servers use the standard Operating System "ping" utility, which is not intrusive by nature.
  2. Please DO NOT use ping test if you are using shared IP hosting as the IP address is not exclusively used by you. It is OK if you are using shared hosting but are assigned a dedicated IP address.
