    If you are using a *nix machine, then you can go to a command prompt and use the whois command.



    OR, if you are using a M$ OS,

    you can go to and fill in the blanks.

    AO also has some whois tools.

    On the main page, on the right hand side, click on tools and toys . Use the whois feature there.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    You can usually get a very detailed profile and contact information if you use the whois command on a dedicated whois server. I personally use whois server. For example:

    Incidentally, that's not an email address at the top on the command line. I can't disable the email address parsing. Anyway, you use the "@" sign to denote the whois server you want to use.
