    For the love of god, learn how to use WHOIS

    If you have any questions about who owns a site, the first place you should check is a WHOIS server, which will give you the registration info for any domain name. This is a very helpful first step in trying to figure out if a new site you have come across is owned by a reputable or scam company.

    Re: For the love of god, learn how to use WHOIS

    I usually just use http://whois.sc/site_url ;)

    Whois doesn't always give any useful information, though. For example: http://whois.sc/shopzu.com

    $50 Gift Card - The Useful - 1/1 Recieved ($75) - 03-27-06
    $50 Walmart Gift Card - 50DollarGiftCard - 1/1 Recieved - 04-03-06
