With printed materials, usually the name of the author is front and center. On the Web, author information is not always available, but the name of the publisher is easy to find.

Go to and enter the domain name of any site.

When your result appears, scroll midway to see to whom the website is registered.

Publisher information can sometimes lead to information about how reputable website information may be, or just provide information as a matter of interest.
