I was trying to look up www.clook.net's IP number and just check it to see if they have got or had any problems with spammers on their lines *not looking at them in particular* but after finding my own provider has my servers IP range blacklisted on one blacklist I decided to just do a general survey, such as www.freeserve.co.ukwww.123-reg.co.uk and of course they are all registered with at least one spam list.
My question is when checking this out in the whois that I used: www.coolwhois.com when checking the IP address of clook.net it said the IP was not registered. I wondered if anybody knew the reason for this.
Is their some problem with having a .net name that it doesn't register properly or something.
I particularly was interested in clook.net as they seem to be highly recommended around here.

[ERROR: 232 doesn't have its own zone. I only handle domains with their own zone and a direct parent zone (just example.com or example.co.uk, not www.example.com or 192.168.100.12 or www.example.co.uk). Try running the test using 232 instead.]
HI Cybe, yeah I found the IP number of their servers, but the strange thing is that when I do a dns search it just sais it can't be found. Strange, I just wondered if their was something about having a .net name?
It has nothing to do with it being a .net. You mean why wouldn't it work when you did a dnsreport.com search? It did give back the IP address, just gave an error message because it was looking for it's DNS Zone.

Just to let you know, and this will apply to a lot of hosts, we have different networks for different type of accounts (shared, UK reseller, US reseller, etc). I would recommend contacting any host you are interested in to ask for the IP/range of the server new accounts are placed on for the package you are interested in so you can run more accurate testing.

Thanks for the explanation Jim, its much appreciated, but I still don't understand why your domain name is any different than anybody elses? eg. www.joeblogs.net compared to www.clook.net ? Whats the difference> Your on the internet as well as joe blogs so how are you on a different network than the rest of us?
*just when I thought I was getting to understand everything* . Just shows how long it can take to get really familiar with the way everything works on the net relative to hosting.
Each network is granted IP space; hosting companies can utilize multiple datacenters, which means they utilize various networks. I am probably connecting to WHT via different network paths than you are. Point being, we donít all utilize the same networks and use the same network carriers.
Here is an example, and I have listed only a few networks:
A datacenter we utilize in the UK has the following network providers:
A datacenter we use in New York has the following network providers:
Cable & Wireless
Each datacenter has certain IP ranges allocated to it. So if you find an IP black listed that is on our NY network - it doesn't mean that all of our IP's will be blacklisted... since we utilize multiple network and datacenter across the globe.
