Hello WalterCh,

Thanks for the question! One of the ways that you can identify your host is to simply look at the domain name and check the WHOIS for the name servers. You can also simply open cPanel, and if it's labeled with the Web Hosting Hub logo, then you're being hosted with us.

If the name servers are pointed to Web Hosting Hub's name servers, then the site is typically hosted at that location. However, this does not necessarily mean that the website files are at the server, if the domain's DNS is pointing to another server, then the website could be on a different host. You will not have access to secure shell (terminal prompt) on the server, so the easiest way is get into your favorite browser, select a search engine like Google and type "What is my host?" There are many free services you can try and they will list your host for you.

I hope this gets you going in the right direction. If you have any further questions or if you need further assistance.
