Is there a way to tell who hosts a website?
Ping — A tool that will return the IP address of the web server.
WHOIS — A lookup that can tell who is hosting my domain, where it was registered and what the Domain Name Server is.
Registrar — A company that help you look up and register a domain name..
Can you own a website anonymously?
Register the domain using an anonymous registration service (not the same as domain privacy), as mentioned in this question. Use an anonymous hosting service that allows you to register under a pseudonym and without providing a postal address, such as Anonymous Speech.
How do I hide ownership of a website?
Yes, it is possible to hide your information on WHOIS. Just get the private registration from your domain registrar. Through this you can hide your personal information. After that check details at a WHOIS service to know whether your registration is private or not.
Can you host a website without a domain name?
Basically a domain name system is like a massive address book that is constantly updated. Behind each domain name, there is an address of the web hosting service storing the website’s files. Without domain names, it will not be possible for people to find your website and without web hosting you cannot build a website.
