how to know where a site is hosted?


hi,
sometimes I'd like to know where a specific site is hosted,
any tool to know that?

I'd like to know where the following sites are hosted:
inhabitat.com
designyoutrust.com
core77.com
yankodesign.com

I know I could send an e-mail to the webmasters...
but I'd prefer to know if this info is somewhere available before bothering someone.

I tried to see the whois info,
but I don't know how to read the info.

for example: http://who.is/whois/core77.com/
tells me that is registered with networksolutions,
and the DNS is ns15.worldnic.com
so, where is the site hosted?

is there a way to know if a site is hosted in a Shared / Virtual Dedicated / or Dedicated?

thanks!

*.worldnic.com belongs to networksolutions.. What about doing a IP whois and look at what network it's hosted on?

hxxp://whois.domaintools.com/209.208.179.226

As for if it's shared / vps / dedicated.. Not any way I know of. Sorry.

Use http://whois.domaintools.com. You can search who the IP is registered to.

I think this might be of a little help, but not sure about the results. Works for some domains though.

You are welcome. And I think there's no way to tell whether it's shared, vps etc.

whoishostingthis.com works. This is a tool I use to find the host of a particular website.

It was pretty bad, we get constant questions about sites that there say that we host but that never were hosted by us.

I have the Netcraft toolbar installed in Firefox. It shows me information about every site that I visit. I can see the host, site ranking and how long the site has existed and a lot more options exist.

Besides asking the people who own the site what they host it on.

ping www.(site) to get ip
traceroute (ip) to get the transit
whois (ip) to get the netblock
etc

I think a traceroute can help more than others in some cases.

This is genius! I bookmarked that website for future reference. What you can do to tell the difference if its shared or dedicated or maybe even VPS is you can see who else is on that server. I forget the website but basically you just check what other websites use your IP. If its a lot then its probably shared.

Check if the nameservers are visible on whois.sc . Then search for them on google.
