    Hi guys

    I was wondering if it's possible to find out from a website who the host is? There is a site I would like to find out where it's hosted as it's not apparent on the pages, but cant seem to find it when viewing the source code. I know it's a Dreamweaver site but that's all I can make out.

    Any help gratefully appreciated as ever [​IMG]

    Thanks hun, I should've thought about that!

    I found the host and the domain name registrar too but can anyone tell me what this means?

    Domain status: clientDeleteProhibited

    Does this mean that nothing can be changed or transferred to another host?

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    What it is is I'm taking over the web maintenance of a business local to me and building them an SBI! site too (all exciting stuff!) but I think I might have a bit of bother with the existing web management guy so trying to find out as much as possible before hand to arm myself. He's trying to land the business owners with a bill for ??125 + vat for the years hosting (updated in March) and domain but I don't know if I would be able to do anything with it if the above statement means nothing can be done with it?

    Owww, I'm rambling now!

    Thanks for any input and thanks again Getagrip [​IMG]

    In domain tools you can only check if the host has put a word about his company. If not there is no go....
