    How to find hosting company via IP?

    Does anyone know how to find a company's hosting company?

    This guy is using my custom made files illegally on his website and I would like to contact his host but I don't know how to go about finding his host.

    I know his IP and by running a hostname to IP search it appears that the server is at GNAX.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe I'll just contact GNAX.


    Thanks

    telnet ip 25

    And see if that gives a hostname

    hey.. hey.. he was asking for hosting company's name, not hostname from IP

    You can use netcraft.com to find the Netblock iowner.

    It can give a bit of info. For example

    rghf@liquidfusion:~$ host eplanetdesign.com
    eplanetdesign.com has address 64.5.58.18

    rghf@liquidfusion:~$ telnet 64.5.58.18 25
    Trying 64.5.58.18...
    Connected to 64.5.58.18.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    So I might guess you are hosted with gzo.com. Though as that is a private nameserver domain not to helpful but a quick google shows that is Dathorn

    Have you tried doing a lookup on the domain and seeing what the nameservers are and going from there?
