This is probably the dumbest question ever posted here…but I have a domain that I pointed to Cloudflare nameservers and I have NO idea who my hosting company is. I was probably messing around, testing some free hosting account, decided to try the free Cloudflare account too…then forgot about it. How the heck do I figure out who is hosting my domain? Wouldn’t that information have to be in my Cloudflare settings…somewhere? Help!
Nope. But if you look up the IP address(es) in your DNS page here, you can plug it/them into this to give you a big hint:
haha, ok…so just to prove that I’m not totally lame, I actually DID do that before posting here I even used the ultratools lookup (vs others) but I was apparently on a different page of the ultratools site that didn’t give me as clear and obvious results as the one you provided.
I’m still a bit confused by the results, because there are two different IP addresses -
the 2 nameserver IPs are different from all the rest (e.g., the domain itself and cpanel).
The nameserver IP resolves to a company I don’t recognize as ever having done business with them, even on a trial basis.
The other domain makes total sense – it’s a hosting company I used a long time ago.
Does it make sense to have two different IPs here? What am I forgetting?
You can ignore the Name Server IP addresses because they shouldn’t be used. It’s the “A” records for the site that matter.
Thank you again!! Super helpful and I have it all figured out now. Phew!
