How do you do?
I see you have already found your answer, but now is as good a time as any
to go through this process.
ping www.portland.co.uk - could not find host
using the whois at http://www.nic.uk reveals the ip addresses of a pair
of name servers - also reveals a name and address for the owner of the
domain - although the accuracy has to be questioned as New Malden is not
plug the ip-address of a nameserver into the whois at http://ripe.net .
This reveals similar name/address data as well as a mail address and a
phone number - although this is a different number to the one you
unearthed. It also shows that the domain owner has been allocated an
entire class c network indicating perhaps that he is not merely a reseller
and is entirely responsible for the health of his network. Unfortunately
data in whois records is notoriously out-of-date - indeed I called a
techie only recently who had changed jobs twice and the whois for his
(twice removed) old company still showed his personal cell-phone number.
** Business as usual
