Default Looking up owner of IP address

I'm feeling dim at the moment (had a lot going on this past week). I can't remember how to look up who owns a particular IP address. I'm trying to figure out who is hosting a particular website. The IP address is 209.62.113.178 when I look it up via myipneighbors.com, but none of the sites listed there give me any obvious clue.

Putting that IP address into the search field at myipneighbors.com I get an Apache page, but couldn't spot anything there telling me the name of the hosting company. Where do I go for this kind of search?

You use WhoIs; enter the IP address and you will get the IP information (so long as it has not been made private in some way).

In this case it is The Planet, a hosting service that specializes in dedicated servers..

Ah, thanks much. The site I was checking has been very reliable and I know the hosting company has some connection with someone I know, so I was curious to know who they are.

Or you could use a "Better Who-is" which should be a better who-is - it claims to be awyway!

Can you say anything about their two levels of paid tools? Even the free tools seem very useful, though.
