Is there a way to find out who the web host is of any particular website. Is there a way like right-clicking to pull info or something.

not really, you could always pull up the whois and try to track the host by the
nameservers but otherwise you'd have to just ask. A lot of times a simple email
to the site owner is good enough to get your answer.

You could also check the ARIN.net database to see who owns the IP address that the server is running on. Even if they're not doing the actual hosting, and just leasing the IP addresses, they will usually either be able to put you in touch with the person leasing the IP, or will forward a message.

I would just e-mail the admin of the site. Most people are more than happy to share their webhost experiences, be it good or bad.

You can use http://www.samspade.org to find the IP address the site is running on, and then do a query (through samspade) on that IP address to find the reverse DNS, which will very often reveal the domain name of the hosting provider (a query on the IP address will also show you the owner of the IP block, but this will often be an upstream provider, not the host itself).

more specifically on whois.sc you want to look at the reverse IP tool - although the free version only gives you three sites that are located on the same IP
