type "ping", followed by full domain name, IP, etc.
AFAIK, ping is pinghttp://www.google.com/linux

The easiest way to find out info about Linux and Unix commands is to read the manual. You can do this by starting a console and doing "man command" e.g. "man ping". If you are not using Linux you can read man pages online by entering something like "linux man ping" on google.
