Utilities For Webmasters

These tools offer some useful services for webmasters.

Ping This utility can be used to determine whether there is a problem with the network connection between two hosts.
Dig This tool will allow you to query the Domain Name Service (DNS) database using the dig command to give you the most ‘behind-the-scenes’ information for an address.
DNS Query This utility will allow you look up DNS information on the domain you specify.
nslookup This tool is a service to look up information in the DNS (Domain Name System).
.htaccess Generator This utility will generate the files you need (.htaccess and .htpasswd) to password protect a directory of your unix/linux-hosted website.
Link Checker This tool will read the page you specify, extract the links from it and test the status of each one. If any errors are found (broken links) these are reported.
Link Extractor This utility will extract all the links from a web page you specify and list them.
IPS Tag Checker A useful tool for those wanting to move domains from one ips tag to another.
HTTP Header Viewer This utility will show you the exact HTTP headers that a web server is sending with a HTTP response.
MIME Types List A useful list of MIME types and their corresponding file extensions.
MX Record Lookup This tool will attempt to find out the mail servers used by an email address you specify. This can be useful if you need to check an email’s authenticity, or check who handles email for a certain address.
Spam Block List Checker This utility allows you to query a number of spam-block and server boycott lists with an IP address you specify to try and ascertain if the IP address is listed as a known spammer or an open mail relay.
Regional Proxy This tool allows you to view web sites as if you were located in a particular country or region determined by yourself. This can be used to check what content is being shown to different countries. It can also help to see if IP-based redirects are working properly.
IP Address Locator This tool will give you the physical location of the computer that has been assigned the IP address you are looking for.
