Strategies for Finding the Publisher of a Website
Examine the domain name
- Often, the publisher of a website is identified in the URL (web address)
Look for an "About Us" Button or Link
- Reputable websites provide contact information, including the name of the sponsoring organization
Check the bottom of the page
- The name of the website publisher is usually shown to the right of the © sign at the bottom of the page
- One of the easiest ways to find the owner or publisher of a website is to go to WHOIS and search for the domain name. In the returned data, the "registrant" is the person who owns the site.
