    I have a client who I am going to host and maintain his website but he has no idea who he obtained a domain name through. I obviously need this to change the nameservers.

    Can anyone tell me if this info in on public page of a site listing on Whois or is there some other way of finding out.

    Try inputting your URL into this site:
    http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/whois-lookup/

    The second line should give you the "Registrar URL:" and will even list the current Name Servers being used.

    Hope that helped and was what you were looked for!

    Thanks Mthomas. I have had a look at Whois page before but couldn't work out who the company was. I will continue my search.

    Registered domains that don’t have a website associated with them have often been purchased by speculators who are banking on making a profit from buying a name they hope will be irresistible to a future purchaser.
