How do I perform a traceroute from a Linux command prompt?

  1. Open an SSH session to your server or VPS.
  2. Run the command

    traceroute domain.com
  3. If you receive a "command not found" message, you will need to specify the whole path to the traceroute command. The traceroute command is typically found in the /sbin directory. In that case you would use the command:

    /sbin/traceroute domain.com

Replace 'domain.com' with the actual domain name to which you want to trace.

For more information about customizing your trace, run the command

man traceroute
