How do I find the host for a website?

    I am trying to send an email to the host of a site that has stolen my hub but not sure if I am looking in the right place. I used WHOIS but it only gives me the server names and the registrar. How do I know which hosting company hosts this website?

      The easiest way is to use one of the online tools like http://www.webhostinghero.com/who-is-hosting.  Just enter the domain name and it will automatically look up the web host.

      The manual method would be to find the IP address the domain name resolves to, then search the ARIN database to find the registered owner of the IP address.

      Wilderness has a hub that goes into great detail on how.

      It goes step by step. If you have to deal with RIPE read their stuff and keep at it.  I was successful

    You may still have to find out how to contact the host, but this tool works well for finding out who they are, even when the domain registration is filled out fraudulently.
