Ping IPv4 tool sends ICMP packets to ping a destination IP or domain. Ping service helps to check if the destination IP is assigned to some device and the device is responding accordingly. Just put an IPv4 address and ping it online.
IPv4 Addresses are of two types, first is IPv4, and second is IPv6 Address. IPv4 Addresses was the first kind of IP that was created in networking. This type of address is short in number, and the maximum available to be ever assigned to devices is 4,294,967,296. When this number is crossed, no more IPv4 address will be available to assign to new devices connected to the internet. For this, a new type of IP was launched which is IPv6, and it holds the capacity of 128 bits, which means 2128 which becomes 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 IPv6 addresses. This number of IPs will not end ever and will be available forever for the networking devices and the devices connected to the internet.
IPv4 Ping tool is an online tool used to ping any device connected to the internet. It sends ICMP packets to the destination IPv4 address. Either you enter a domain or an IPv4 Address, it simply finds out the IPv4 address of a domain and sends a ping on that IP. If the destination device supports ICMP incoming connection, it responds back within milliseconds and tells that I am online and listening.
Online IP Ping service is most beneficial for webmasters or developers. The most common usage of pinging is when a person sets up a new server or machine and wants to check its properly accepting new connections; then ping serves as beneficial for checking its availability.
