So I am working for a local business and they set up a website a while back. The problem is that my boss does not know who is hosting it. He paid a local guy to set it up for him. Now the guy only edits it once a week to change the ads around. My boss wants it so that he can edit it himself without having the middle man since it is fairly simple to change 4 pics once a week. I found out the servers that the website is on but those servers are rented to another company who is hosting the website. The server company would not give me the information on who they are renting it to. So how can I find out who is actually hosting it so that my boss can edit the website himself?

Depends if you own the domain name and the website content. Is there a legal contract for this work?

Sounds like a poorly run business...

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.
