It has been a long time since I did this but someone once showed me a website whre you can easily find the owners of the names of websites (in other words, the "URL" ).

You see, whenever you buy a website, the first thing you do is you register the name -- or specifically, the thing that a user will time in the address bar when they want to go to your website.

I had thought that this website was called "Intranic dot net" (I will not type a URL here in case that is against the rules). But when I type that out, it does not go to the place I remember.

Does anyone know this?

This is an official service I believe.

Nominet (http://www.nominet.org.uk/) is the British top-level registrar, which provides WHOIS lookup too.
