i just want to know , ob westhost a reseller is. they wrote me that they have their own servers. but the dns query looks like :

DNS Servers: name server name server

how can I really deduce if someone is just reselling services?

WestHost is not a reseller, they lease/co-locate their servers in a NOC owned by another company, most consumer web hosting companies do this, otherwise they would have to pay excessive amount for their own connectivity.

I believe Host4u.Net is owned by OLM. is the DNS server for many, (possibly hundreds) of web hosting companies. I believe it is a shared resource between all hosting companies that share the NOC. This should make sense as one DNS server can handle hundreds of thousands of entries.
