The simple answer is: we’re right more often than our competitors. Unlike tools like Netcraft and Domain Tools, we use multiple data sources to answer your queries. That means, when it comes to the question, ‘Who hosts this website?’, we’re much more likely to give you the correct answer.
Let's look at a quick example…. Search for the domain HostGator.com on a service like DomainTools or Netcraft , and you'll be told that the site is hosted by The Planet. That’s wrong.
HostGator is a webhost so, obviously, they host themselves. The confusion comes because they rent space in The Planet’s datacenter.
Try the same search on Who Is Hosting This and you'll get a proper answer: Hostgator host Hostgator.com. We use multiple sources of information to make sure we get the answer right more often than our competitors.
