    Your question doesn't really make sense but,...

    They can look at who your web host is if they do a reverse DNS lookup or whois query and look at the DNS servers.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm more interested whether they could somehow look at what other websites are stored actually in my hosting package. In my hosting package I have multiple websites

    I have hosting with a blackhat member and on my hosting package I have both my bh and wh site. I use the bh site to incentivise the wh site.

    So really, I don't want anyone to be able to look inside my hosting. I only became worried about this because at one point I had no index.html and when I went on my site it gave me a view of other files on my hosting package.

    I hope this makes more sense??
