Hello
I can use domaintools.com to find who a domain name belongs to and where in the world it is hosted but what about the webpages.

How can I find out where in the world are the webpages of a website are stored.

If I use firefoxes flag fox it gives the ip address and then the "server location". Is the "server location" the location for the domain registrar or is it the location of the webpages server.

I believe you can have a domain name in one country and web pages actually residing on another server in a completely different country.

Thanks
Ford

Generally a trace route to the website can show you where its hosted. please be aware that even if the base page is in a particular place, elements in it can be served from anywhere e.g. pcitures, ads etc.
