could anybody discover who http://www.webbyte.com really resells for ?

The IP block for their website as well as their first group of nameservers goes to Colossus (http://colossus.net). The IP block for his or her second group of nameservers goes to covesoft.com (however the domain for auction on that second group of nameservers can also be at Colossus).

Thanks Annette for the prompt reply. Are you going to be my teacher for longer?

I must find out how you will know "the IP block for their website and first group of nameservers" really goes to Colossus.

The IP block for his or her second group of nameservers goes to covesoft.com (however the domain for auction on that second group of nameservers can also be at Colossus).
Again, how are you aware their "second group of nameservers" goes to covesoft.com which "the domain for auction on that second set" can also be at Colossus?

Thanks ahead of time for teaching me the secrets of the pros, Annette! Your prompt and regular help in here is greatly appreciated... and i'm sure the majority of the others think exactly the same.

Just in case Annette may be from the forums for any couple of minutes , I'll provide you with a solution: visit http://www.samspade.org and enter "webbyte.com" within the first area on that page, choosing the "whois" and "IP block" boxes on that line. You will get the data you are searching for.

Then you might like to download SamSpade for Home windows, which can make this type of factor simpler.

You may also perform a whois research at www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois
copy the Ip from the primary nameserver, and visit www.arin.net/whois/ to appear up. JayC's link may be simpler, though

Student, you found the best place to understand new and dazzling things - look whatsoever the assistance available here!

OK, Used to do my searches on the server, since i have happened to possess a session open anyway. But that merely is not practical for most of us, so...

If you are likely to be tracing this kind of info regularly, installing Mike Spade in the URL distributed by Jay may be beneficial. Brian's idea can also be good should you simply be doing periodic searches. Lots of people such as the ease of Mike Spade - I personally use it more frequently than I personally use command line searches around the server, actually.

Once you download and install Mike Spade, one thing you will want to do is to establish a nameserver inside the software to inform it where sometimes it can go to appear some misconception for you personally. Visit Edit -&gt Options -&gt Fundamentals tab. Don't look into the DHCP box, as I have discovered that Mike Spade gives sporadic performance this way. Rather, type the title of the nameserver within the box below that. It's not necessary to make use of your ISP's always - you could utilize Yahoo's and kind in ns.yahoo.com. Click OK and you will be back in the primary window.

Within the far right box across the top you will see the nameserver that'll be i did so searches. It will complete using the nameserver you joined through the Options otherwise, simply enter in the nameserver you will be utilising. Within the box left of this, choose "Magic". This can allow Mike Spade to make use of its very own judgment to choose a suitable WHOIS for a number of .tlds (.com, country specific domain names, etc.). It sometimes cannot look for a WHOIS database to question - usually for several country-specific domain types - by which situation it's essential to go through the web to that particular signing up agent's page to perform a research.

Now, the simple part. To find information about a website, just type the domain title within the upper left hands box and click on the arrow near the box or press enter. Mike Spade is going to do a WHOIS and provide you with the outcomes below. Scroll with the information before you achieve the nameserver information. You are able to double click the Ip alongside a nameserver and Mike Spade will place it in to the research box - you'll be able to hit the arrow near the box and it'll see who that Ip (a part of a block) goes to.

It this unique instance, this is what I'd do:

Lookup webbyte.com in Mike Spade. Double click the Ip for that first nameserver, hit the arrow. This pulls back information on Colossus, so you will know the IP is a component of the block that goes for them. Enter in the domain title from the second group of nameservers (TIRUPATIINFOSYS.NET). Across the left hands navigation bar, you will see a choice that states "Ping". Click that, and Mike Spade will ping the domain. After that you can lookup the Ip the pings return by double clicking and striking the arrow - that will return information on Colossus again. You may also lookup information on that second domain by putting it into the research box and striking enter.

One factor to bear in mind - because so many merchants use virtual nameservers, they may not track to their provider, but up upstream. For example, should you researched a lot of our merchants, and researched their Insolvency practitioners, you'd discover that their Insolvency practitioners were a part of Alabanza's blocks. It is a method for a number to stay transparent towards the reseller's clients. So just dealing with the very best upstream might not let you know all you need to know.

Seem complicated? It is not, really, when you get used to it. You would be surprised how adept you'll become at researching what domain names are where.
