    Hi.

    If I go:

    whois www.google.com

    I will get what I want.

    But if I go:

    whois www.[I]anyname[/I].blogspot.com

    I dont get any results. Probably because the domain is blogspot.

    How can I know 'who is' in this case? Its specifically a blog.

    The whois databases won't give you this information. The domain will be have been registered as *.blogspot.com.

    (And this is not a mac programming question).

    I doubt you can find out this information. Surely Google would have to respect the privacy of the individual who set up the blog.
