1/ query the whois of the according registrar. Example : for .com :
www.internic.net, for .org, www.pir.org. For countries query their NIC
(Network information center), www.nic.fr for France for example.
If you prefer something easier : http://www.whois-search.com/ which
will automagically query the correct whois database.

2/ A web server is bound to an IP address. You can find who owns this
IP by querying another set of databases. Start from the ARIN database
at www.arin.net which might redirect you to some other databases (RIPE
for Europe, APNIC for Asiac/Pacific, LACNIC etc.).

http://www.whois-search.com/ will work in both cases. To have the name
converted to IP AND the whois query at the same time :

Hope this helps,

Paris, France.
