How do I find out who the web host is for a blog?

    I discovered a blog (http://blog.your-jewelry-shop.com/) has stolen some of my content. After a little search with Google it looks like they’ll steal content from anyone.

    They are powered by wordpress.org so I know wp com/org can’t get involved. So I was hoping someone would be able to tell me how I figure out who hosts the site.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Search for “whois” in google and then use one of the services to find out (I typically use Network solutions). When searching, look only for the main domain (your-jewelry-shop.com) not with the “blog.” in front of it as that is a subdomain.

    Thanks! That was very helpful. I’ve logged an Abuse complaint and let some of the other people who’ve been affected know about it.

    I appreciate the quick response. :)
