do a whois lookup on his domain
http://www.geektools.com/whois.php

The name servers listed on the results will tell you who is hosting it.

Whois the domain name and get the DNS info. You can also whois the IP address.

It's not always that can tell the name of the company judging by the nameservers in the whois.

doing the same query at domaintool.com will net you a best guess of who owns the ip space where the server is located. that ought to be the hosting company.
