Default How to identify a web hosting company

A friend has asked me to update some pages on her websight (she's fallen out
with the original developer) but she doesn't know the hosting company - or
the username or the password. All I've got to go on is the domain name.
Does anyone know if there's a way of finding out the company that hosts the
web site?

It's a simple problem but I've never had to face it before

Thanks!

ping the domain

then do a whois on the IP address

The site may be the property of the development company
