What is Traceroute?

Have you ever thought how a domain can be accessed by a computer? How come when you open www.safelink.asia in a web browser it will immediately appear? Every internet package must have its own path to reach its destination. This can be tracked using Traceroute. With Traceroute, you can see how internet packets are going until they reach the destination you want to achieve. According to Wikipedia , Traceroute(Tracert) is a command to indicate the route that a packet takes to reach its destination. Traceroute functions to trace traces on Internet protocol (IP) packets and to find out the path of packets from one network to another.

How To Use Traceroute?
