I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi adminhk,
Tracing IP addresses and Domain Names


*****Europe*****


Europe - Ripe (Whois) Database - IP Search
http://www.ripe.net/perl/whois

The RIPE Network Management Database (the RIPE Database) contains information about

Allocations and assignments of IP address space
Internet routing
Reverse DNS
Related objects.

The data is put into the database by those who operate IP networks
within the RIPE region. The RIPE NCC supports the operation of the
RIPE Database, but it is not responsible for its contents.

The data is accessible by a whois service (whois.ripe.net).  Thus, the RIPE
Database is sometimes called the RIPE Whois Database.

ARIN Whois
http://www.arin.net/tools/whois_help.html


ARIN's WHOIS service provides a mechanism for finding contact and registration information for resources registered with ARIN. ARIN's database contains IP addresses, autonomous system (AS) numbers, organizations or customers that are associated with these resources, and related Points of Contact (POC).


*****Aisia & Pacific Regeon*****


APNIC Whois

APNIC is one of four Regional Internet Registries currently operating in the world. It provides allocation and registration services which support the operation of the Internet globally. It is a not-for-profit, membership-based organisation whose members include Internet Service Providers, National Internet Registries, and similar organisations. APNIC represents the Asia Pacific region, comprising 62 economies

If you just need to find out an IP from a domain name, quickly and easily, an nslookup at the command prompt of the syntax 'nslookup <domain-name>' will returnt he IP associated with it.

Remember also to send an e-mail to the abuse department at the offender's ISP, we can live in hope that one day an ISP will disable people for SPAM!
