How to know which hosting your website is on

Written on May 25, 2009 by CincauHangus

Been working with htc’s site on a while and was stuck on a few things because lack of bits and pieces of information to do my work.. I wanted to know which hosting was the sites was on so this is what I did.

Two things you need, your command prompt (Start > Run > Type in ‘cmd’ > OK/Enter) and a DNS trace service.

First find out the host IP address via the command prompt.

C:\> ping cincauhangus.com

This will start pinging the domain as well as giving you the IP address of the domain (which might look something like this: 123.234.4.24).

There’s an alternative to this method. You can try using the DNS Lookup tool and do an ‘A’ DNS lookup. It will then return the IP address similar to the method above.

Using that IP address, do a reverse DNS lookup. It will then return a web/domain address.

Now that you have that information, you can do a WHOIS Lookup. If the results of the reverse DNS lookup has a subdomain in it, remove it and enter the domain address only (eg: mschosting.com and not something.mschosting.com)

The results will tell you the company that owns that domain, which usually is the hosting company for that website you’re checking out. :)
