How to find out who's hosting the site - refresher needed
I'm trying to help another person in another forum track down
someone who allegedly copied his site and is selling his ebook.
The domain name in question is google-machine.com.
I looked up the WHOIS and the domain's using their own DNS.

the domain's using its parent name for its DNS.
I'll keep you posted.
