    Cool tool - "Who is hosting this?"

    http://whoishostingthis.com/ - Just stumbled upon it out of nowhere... Saw it in someone's sig on another forum. Pretty cool tool, quick & easy to use. Funny to see how many random websites are hosted on 1&1 and godaddy -.-

    I love how the thing links to a website that isn't the host - looks like a marketing tool to me

    I haven't found a domain it actually works for yet! Although to be fair it did link to the correct data center website so probably just doesn't have enough info to narrow things down to the actual host for all domains.

    It doesn't link to a sponsored site, worked fine with the 10-20 sites I tested, including my own. Try it, xetch.net is hosted on softlayer, it'll come up right.

    The toy says "hosted by: COLLEGE SUMMIT" instead "IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx allocated to COLLEGE SUMMIT"

    Okay so now you want to argue semantics?

    Some work, some don't. It's a cool tool, but definitely nowhere close to being perfect.
