    Hello,

    I want to contact a site owner to make him an offer, but he has no contact page, and I found no more informations on the whois, except he's with GoDaddy for his domain.

    Do you know if there's a way to contact him ?

    Thanks,

    admin@domain.com
    info@domain.com

    Find posts on website and if they have a name.. example robber Try sending email to robbert@domain.com

    If none of above work...

    Try to leave a comment

    If that does not work -> check whois info again -> if it is not private it should have some sort of info?

    Check name server... If he has private nameserver --> check that domain for info! For example his site is www.facebook.com and his nameservers are ns1.google.com and ns2.google.com... check google.com for more info about owner....

    Check what other websites run from that Ip-adres... Check those websites for contact info... Unless its shared hosting... Then forget about it.

    Send an email to webmaster for the domain --- by default the webmaster account suppose to forward to the domain owner registered email address. Other than that then you may need to get the domain registar to get in contact and make the offer or a third-party service like Sedo.com

    Sounds like he's done a good job to keep you from spamming him with your offers but RFC says he must have a webmaster@domain.com or postmaster@domain.com if he gives a shit about them.

    I personally quit setting up any email addresses for domains because I got tired of all the spammers sending me emails about similar domains for sale, SEO services or fake offers. If he wanted to sell the site he'd have contact information available.

    I had this same issue when trying to contact an owner, I created an account for the services they where offering (Free to signup), then the email was on the page after you login for "tech support".

    If they offer payment via paypal, you can get the email that way too. Sometimes the email is in the PayPal HTML code too that you can grab pretty easy.

    Here's a couple more ideas...

    1. Search for the domain on google, maybe the owner signed up on another forum, and you can try to send a PM through a forum the owner is a member of.

    2. Find their social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook) to try and make contact.

    3. You can contact the ISP/Server-Host to see if you can get the owners email address

    whois -> send email to that address
    whois -> if he uses actual name find him on fb
    reverse lookup -> find his other sites and may be they will have some contact info?

    Did you specifically use the GoDaddy whois? With my experience some GoDaddy domains you need to go to the godaddy whois page, not a general one. Also, if it is private I am almost positive you can email the private email and it will forward to them.

    As someone said "who.is" is your best bet I usually find email addresses like this.
