Well, you can find the IP address by pinging the website hostname, so as an example ping www.microsoft.com from a command prompt.  From there you have two pieces of information that can help you.  Go out to www.arin.net and put the IP address into their WHOIS query and it will tell you the network that the IP address belongs to or the ISP of the website.  You can also go out to www.networksolutions.com/whois/ and put the domain name into that field and it will tell you information about who owns that domain name registration.

the best and easiset way is to go out to ARIN.NET and put the www.Domainname.com in the search whois field and then it will give you all kinds of information like administrative contact abuse contact ect.  Even if it is being hosted dynamically off of a home PC the domain is registered.

Thanks
