How to find owner information for a website domain

I had a friend (Anette) ask me: I want to find out who owns a website-is there anyway of getting a name / address / phone # for that person?

There’s websites that help you find the contact information for any given website. Most websites you can find doing a Google search for domain lookup, but they don’t tell you a phone number, address, etc. They tell you who hosts that website and what DNS records they use, etc.

This website unfortunately doesn’t work for .ca domains. It only searches for .com, .biz, .net, .info, .org domains.

http://www.cira.ca/ is supposed to give a list for .ca domains but doesn’t include as much information as http://www.betterwhois.com/ although, with the information you do get, you can use that as a starting point and go to that host they are with to get more information. They will co-operate if it’s for a good reason and release the information to you or at least to local law enforcement, should it be for legal reasons.

  1. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I
    know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
