If you are using a shared web hosting package, have you wondered what other domain names are hosted under the same server as you are?
Previously, I was using the reverse IP function provided by domaintools to check the list of domain names hosted under the same server. This function does not come for free. You will need to subscribe to their service and pay a monthly fee in order to use it. For non-subscribers, they will display the first three domain names for free. I only tried out their 30 day free trial and cancelled my subscription after that.
I was reading iCalvyn’s blog and he was blogging about a website called myIPneighbors. MyIPneighbors uses the same reverse IP lookup method to export the list of all domain names hosted under a server. The advantage of this service compared to the one by domaintools is that myIPneighbors is completely free. In fact, it provides extra functionality by displaying the website or blog within the same page.
Go ahead and try out myIPneighbors. You may just find a new website or blog that is interesting. Who knows, you may even make a friend or two.
