How to know the web server is hosted by ...?

(OP)
If I want to know whether a web server is hosted by a hosting company, or by its own, how to figure it out? Thanks.

RE: How to know the web server is hosted by ...?

Use nslookup tool, this can be a little messy to use though.  I would go to www.network-tools.com and enter the website domain, and select dns records. EB

RE: How to know the web server is hosted by ...?

Do an nslookup on the www.domain.com and then a whois on the resulting IP address.

Well using www.networksolutions.com then pick whois in the top right corner.  Type in the domain, like mydomain.com, with no www in front.  Then it should bring up the registar and domain contacts.  Many times these include phone numbers and sddresses to contact them.  By revieiwing this you can find out who registered the domain and who administrates it.  Hope this helps.

I knew how to find the registar and domain contacts info based on domain name, my question was is there a way to find out if user manages his own server(server located on user side), or user use virtual hosting server(server located on hosting company) based on domain name(where is web server located)? thanks.
