I bought a web-hosting in Hostgator with a baby plan, and bought another domain from Namecheap and hosted it also in Hostgator current plan, both domains had Domain Protection Policy.

How did somebody know that the two different domains were owned by only one person?

  • By Domain Protection Policy, do you mean "Privacy Protection" or do you mean that you used some service like GoDaddy's Domain Ownership Protection (which prevents your domain name from expiring)? – GeoffAtkins Nov 27 '19 at 9:51

    Are these gTLDs? ccTLDs? Who was it that knew? Are they hosted on exactly the same server? There are far too many variables about who knew what to answer clearly. – GeoffAtkins Nov 27 '19 at 10:00

It is easy to find out what websites are running on the same server. There are many tools that can easily give you this information: websites on same server lookup. All you need to do is enter one domain name into the tools and it will tell you other domain names running on the same server.

Along the same lines, there are other attributes that your websites may share and tools to find the relationship.
