Trace Route allows you to trace the route from the server your site is on to the computer you are accessing cPanel from (i.e. the number of servers and what servers your data must pass through to get to your site). This is helpful in determining any network connection issues from your location to your server.
To look up information on any domain, enter the domain (e.g. griotsites.com) into the text box under Domain Lookup, and click Look Up. This will display information regarding the domain registrar and current DNS settings.
To perform a Trace Route to your specific server from your location, click the Trace button under Trace Route.
