how-to block ads
All we are going to do is find the host's IP Address, then use this information to look up their IP Address block with the American Registry for Internet Numbers.
If you're running Windows, the process for this is pretty simple. We'll use dslreports.com as an example.
•Lookup the host's IP address using nslookup. For our example, enter nslookup www.dslreports.com.
•Find the IP Address. The field we'll be using is the one that says "Address". Copy the number from there. In our example, the IP Address will resolve to 220.127.116.11
•Use the ARIN web site to find who that IP address is assigned to. Go to »www.arin.net and paste the IP Address we got from in the last step (18.104.22.168) into the WHOIS box at the top of the right side, then click "Search WHOIS".
•You're done. We now know that www.dslreports.com is hosted at »www.nac.net in Parsippany, NJ.
This method doesn't always work, but it can get you valuable information. If you have difficulty finding out where a web host is located, please post a question in /forum/webhost
