Is it possible to find out what company is hosting a website?

My family's business website was built years ago, and then neglected. They still own the domain, and the site is still up.

They want to rebuild the site now, but after two office moves, can't find any of the records of who is hosting the thing.

Is there any way to find out?

Here is the site, if it helps:

You could do a whois search and see where the DNS records point to and perhaps there is a Technical Contact showing the company name/address.

In terminal - 'whois'

EDIT: Ah beat to it.
