I looked to see if this question was asked before and it wasn't. So, maybe I am just clueless, but I can't find anything in my account information that indicates anything is referred to as "hostname" or "hostnamehere". The example given in that FAQ never gave an example of what a "hostnamehere" would look like. I mighta been able to figger it out from there.Many have asked "How do I find out which node my VPS is on?".
In this tutorial I will outline the steps in finding the answer to this question.
(Assuming your on Windows)
Go to Start, Run
- Type: cmd
- Type: tracert -w 300 hostnamehere (replace your hostname with hostnamehere)
- The second to last hop will be *.private*******.net where the * is the nodenumber-the datacenter your in.
Please provide more complete information when using generic terminology. If the account information uses one term and the FAQ uses another, there will be confusion. I am not one to keep quiet so that no one will know I don't know something. Unfortunately, this is one of those things no one should have to ask. I was a crypto specialist in Vietnam, but my code book is out of date.
Thanks for any help,
