I'm not quite sure I understand the question but I'll give a stab at a guess.

If you are trying to find out where the site his hosted from, you can ping the domain name to retrieve the IP address of the site:
Open a command prompt in Windows and type "ping www.domainname.com" and hit enter.
Make note of the IP address returned in the result.
Go to http://www.selfseo.com/ip_to_country.php and input the IP address to look up what country it is assigned to.
