I can see that website is having problem accessing from Brazil and Lithunia. This report gives me an idea that most of countries have access to my website. I will check later again to see if Brazil and Lithunia will change to ok.

If you want to see the network route from other sources to your website, then you can use tool. Simply enter your server IP address or your full qualified domain name (FQDN) e.g. The trace route will run from a terminal in Netherlands, Australia, Singapore, and USA. It is randomly selected terminals, I see terminals from Japan and France as well. See the attached image as example trace route result for website. The trace route gives you information where the source network came from.
