Website Tools are an array of familiar Linux utilities designed to help identify point-of-failure for external websites.
With such tools as WHOIS, dig, traceroute, ping, and more, this page helps a web admin see why a website or domain name does not properly resolve, as well as check A records, SPF records, TLD expirations, DNS propogation, and email black-list testing.
In addition, it provides all the output with full explanations of the tools' usage, raw, colorized output, and next steps to check or to fix an identified problem!
Website Tools are geared toward IT personnel and enthusiasts. Its utilities and output are fashioned in such a way that is useful and definitive for troubleshooting, whereas other sites may focus on 'watering down' the results to be more accessible to novices. Often, such watered down results are inadmissible by tech support flow paths and thus hinder and extend troubleshooting times. By providing raw, but colorized input and in-depth descriptions of valid 'next-steps', troubleshooting websites and learning the mechanics behind the internet backbone become much more accessible.
