If you’re ever stuck trying to find out which web hosting service a website uses, then there’s a very simple way to find out.
All you need to do is perform a WHOIS lookup, which provides information about any domain name.
A popular WHOIS site is http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/index.jsp. All you do is enter the domain name, and check under the “Domain servers” section. It should look like “ns1.hostingsite.com” so the part after the ns1 will tell you who the web host is.
This could be really useful if you’re looking for hosting yourself, and are impressed by the speed and stability of a site you come across. You can quickly lookup its host and get the same great service for yourself!
