So I was messing around today, and decided to do a traceroute to


It went through about 5 servers that were all named things like but slight variations


Then through 2 random IP addresses, and ended up at, which i assume is where is stored.


So who is Global Gateway? I tried googling it but found not much of interest (or that I could understand, not being a network engineer)


I did find however a site called which when visited has the spark logo in the corner and a login prompt, which I assume is for Spark tech support as my Spark login didn't work there.
