How To Test Speed to Hostwinds Data Centers

There are many factors that determine speed across the internet.  For your convenience, Hostwinds provides the ability to test speed to our current data centers by supplying an IP to our Seattle, WA and Dallas, TX locations. All of the services Hostwinds provides are designed with Speed In Mind.

Hostwinds offers the ability to check speed to our data centers straight from our website here.

 

Clicking on “Dallas Data Center” or “Seattle Data Center” will provide an IP at the bottom of the page for that location.

How To Check Latency Using A Ping Test

 

The IP’s to run your own checks against to measure the speeds you will be receiving with your services are:

 

Dallas Data Center Test IP:  108.174.193.107

Seattle Data Center Test IP:  104.168.168.16

Press CTRL + C on your keyboard to stop a ping request


To perform basic network tests, and make sure you are getting the best speed for your services, open command prompt or shell.  Type the following command to test speeds from your location to Hostwinds Dallas Data Center:

 

ping 108.174.193.107

 

Or, test the speeds to Hostwinds Seattle Data center:

 

ping 104.168.168.16

 

Your Output will look similar to the following if you are testing using a Windows Command Prompt:
