Have you ever been in a situation where you want to know where a website is hosted? You may come across a website and really enjoy its speed that you may want to find out who is hosting it, this can be quite annoying sometimes especially when you are trying to go through the usual channel of searching the WHOIS database, often times you end up finding the name of the company or individual that registered the domain, but not the actual company that is hosting it.
Today in this article I am going to share with you several ways you can find who is hosting any website. Just recently I was faced with a challenge to find a worthy web hosting company I could move one of my sites to, so I decided to check out some popular sites I know to find out who is hosting them.
Then I realized searching the WHOIS information is not always enough to finding who actually is hosting their website. Then I decided to search the internet for any useful information to help me determine which web hosting company is hosting these sites.

You may use an add on in your browser called “flag”(Chrome or Firefox) It shows immediatly the country flag of the hosting + you can open a menu full of services…

Another such tool is Hosting Detector which besides web hosting detection also provides statistics and other data.
