Question

Are there some test IP for each location ?

Posted September 4, 2014 23.6k views

Hi,
I wanna give a quick test on speed of the host on different location, but I found the testing result of http://ipv4.speedtest-*.digitalocean.com varying a lot (if you run it serval times in a row, you’ll find it very unstable). Also this testing result is not quite intuitionist.
Wondering is there any test host IP for each location ? Thanks ahead.

Hi! I uploaded a script for test this. Check in Github.

Thanks!

Hi. You can use this command line tool to test latency from you to all DO regions

What kind of testing are you looking to do? If you just want an IP to ping and traceroute, each of those Speedtest sites is located in the respective datacenter. So there is an IP for each location. For instance, speedtest-nyc3.digitalocean.com is 104.131.63.93

  • Cool, that’s exact what I’m looking for. Didn’t know those servers are located exact where their domain name meaning to : D

    So I just want to list them down, in case anyone is looking for the same information as me:

    speedtest-lon1.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-sfo1.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-ams1.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-ams2.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-nyc1.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-nyc2.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-nyc3.digitalocean.com
    speedtest-sgp1.digitalocean.com

    • Just as a note for anyone who might come across this list in the future: our AMS1 region was deprecated in late 2015, so its DNS hostname was removed as well. The currently available regions are visible on the speed test websites (each one has the same content).

http://speedtest-ams3.digitalocean.com/

visit this site and pick the server you want to test. it’ll do a download - upload - ms and jitter test.
