    Not sure, what is whois stating, and where are the nameservers resolving to?

    Name Servers are currently pointing to:

    remarks: rev-srv: ns1.navaho.co.uk
    remarks: rev-srv: ns3.navaho.co.uk


    I see what you mean, tracert indeed is showing alot of .de hops.

    Hosting now provided by Hetzner?

    Hmmm.. Look at the stats of the EQ4 root server: http://www.hetzner.de/de/hosting/pro...ootserver/eq4/

    Looks that way:

    Code:
    tom@flying-squirrel:~$ traceroute www.edugeek.net
    traceroute to www.edugeek.net (78.46.90.194), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

    Also appears to be well priced. Hope they are reliable. A Good, short number of hops from UK too - 9 vs. 7 for one of our UK hosted web servers, and 16 from one US site to edugeek, vs 17 to the same UK server. So from a non-scientific "ooh, I wonder" sort of testing methodology - pretty decent connectivity.

    based on the hops from my machine, (I get 7 hops btw) it is based in germany, but thats not a bad thing as it loads faster for me now.

    Gotta love those efficient germans!

    Tracert doesn't work here, it's dropped at the routers.
