    nameservers

    is there a site that lets you type in a domain name and it tells you that what kind of server they are on? i.e. shared or dedicated

    or would it be just a safe bet to assume that if they have their own nameservers they are on a vps or dedicated?

    thanks

    There is no such tool where in you can find what type of server you are on, most cases the name servers can give a clue, but it can also mean that the domain uses the servers name servers or customer name servers, it can also be very tough to identify.

    One thing that you can use is to check how many domain are hosted on the IP address but it can't guaranty that it is dedicated server

    say for instance somebody on a shared account has the name server:

    ns1.ipowerweb.com

    would it be possible for someone on a dedicated server to also have the same name server, ns1.ipowerweb.com?

    Im assuming no since it would be a separate server.

    Thanks

    yes its possible, because dns servers just point to ip addresses they can be any ip address, in other country if i wish.
