Identify Domain Routing Issues with Visual Dig Tool

If your website is not displaying correctly, the first step is to ensure that your domain name is registered and that the DNS (Domain Name Server) is pointing your domain name to the right server.

Using professional tools such as tracert, ping or dig to check the routing of a domain name can be difficult and confusing for novice web developers. However, if you use these tools often enough, you will become familiar with how they work; but for the occasional user, we’ve created an easy-to-use tool that performs the same function.

The Visual Dig tool will check to see where a domain name is routing and displays that information in a visual representation. This makes it easy to see if there is a problem, where it is and fix it.

Identify domain routing issues by entering a domain name in the box below. After you hit submit, the website will display where your domain name is pointing and where your email is being routed to.
