When I do my first degree couple of years ago, I’m majoring in networking, but however IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m unable to practice what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m learning since my first fob was as a programmer. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m doing coding (mostly using Oracle Suites) until I moved to analyst roles recently
Until I started blogging and doing some internet thingy a couple of months ago, my interest to networking grown bolder. Although I won’t be doing any job related to networking anymore on my day job or I plan to do so in future, but there are few tools that I used and discovered in my learning process
I have been using dnsstuff for few months since introduced by my friend. This website provides multiple tools related to IP, domain and hostname. I can said that this is all in 1 place, where you can do things such as WHOIS, trace route, ping and DNS report. Additionally, if you need an access to more tools, you can register and buy their service.
If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re dealing with a lot of websites everyday such as moderating link directories, approving contents submitted by visitors, Senderbase is the ideal place to track down the status for any website. This is done by browsing to senderbase.org (Reputation score Ã¢â‚¬â€œ if you want to know if a site been blocked or not) by using this URL below
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m using my blog URL as a sample, and since this blog is relatively new, it was rated as ‘neutral’ Another piece of information that I is important and should be taken care here is the list of top virus sender and spammer based on IP address
Why network tools important?
I have talking about statistic, Google webmaster, little bit about SEO in my previous posts. Knowing basic network is important if you want to know a little bit more about your visitors. If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re running blog, you can track down comments given by your visitors since normally they will provide URL and website. On most CMS, whoever sends email will came with the IP address logged into the database. In case you came across issue such as plagiarism such as on this issue (the issue has resolved by both party by now), this information especially IP address is crucial to defend or to prove any accusations
