How to Perform a Traceroute in Windows

Step 1: Click on the “Start” menu and type “cmd” into the search field (where it says “Search programs and files” or “Start search”).
Step 2: Push the Enter key on your keyboard. A DOS prompt window will open up.
Step 3: Type the following command in the command window: “tracert -d yourdomain.com” (remember to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name)
Step 4: Make sure to let the traceroute finish completely; it can sometimes take several minutes.
Step 5: You should see something similar to the following when it finishes:

C:\Users\Account>tracert -d yourdomain.com
