Tracing webhosting company

  1. Not sure if anyone can help but I am trying to trace who is hosting a website. I have carried out a whois search on the domain name and from the information thought I had found the company but they say we must have acquired the name through a reseller, who at the moment is unknown.
    The nameserver is listed but I have tried to contact the company without success.
    The reason for doing all this is to update our website and to improve out e-mail using the domain name.
    Do any of you guys have any experience of this and can point me in the right direction?

    Who has been making changes to that website up till now?
    Who installed it originally?
    Any company send you a renewal notice for the website and/or registration?
    PM me with that website name and any other info you may have, and I'll see what I can dig up for you.

    Hi Real. the domain name and website is The only info I can get from the website is that it seemed to be with Btinternet but when we contacted them they didn't know anything about it.
    The domain is registered with, we contacted them and they told us it was through a reseller and did not know who it was. The person who originally set it all up has moved on amd cannot remember who it was all done through, it was 8 years ago now.
    The contacts we have seem to be with a company in the states called but we have sent them numerous e-mails without reply, hence the questions on here.

    Someone has an email account "monopigmentdevelopments @", and this has some webspace attached to it as well. This space was used for these few pages.

    If you don't get anywhere, 'suck' the pages from there, then search for a cheap hosting company (e.g. to store your website.
