Trace a web site

I have used an oil buying website in the past and it has worked well,and now it does not work and e mails are returned,wheb I use Contact Us,  it is an ordering site that directs to a supply source. How can I find who owns it or contact its owner .It will quote for oil but the order part does not work  Any ideas it is  http://www.oilforyou.co.uk They dont actualy handle the money part of the transaction  Thank You

Re: Trace a web site

They may be an old established company but that website is registered to a private individual so is a bit odd,
Quote
Registrant's address:
        The registrant is a non-trading individual who has opted to have their
        address omitted from the WHOIS service.
which is an outright lie as the registrant is a trading company

Re: Trace a web site

I have in the past had oil from "oil for you",the oil order was given to Tinknells and was  paid for with Pay Pal and they delivered. Tinknells is a family business based in Wells  Somerset. The site says oil will be delivered by the cheapest suplier and prices on the site are cheaper than on the phone direct to Tinknells I willask on Monday as 1000litres is about 15 cheaper with " oil for you." Another such site is Boilerjuice. Thank You for your interest

Re: Trace a web site

The point about Boilerjuice ,Direct Oil, Oil for you etc is that they all seem cheaper than if you phone the owners own selling office, or even the likes of MVF a farmers buying group, the amounts are small but 1p a litre on 1000 is £10 Yesterday Watsons Quoted 53.98 litre,and Oilfor you ( owned by Watsons) 52.35 a good saveing.( all plus VAT ) If you need oil, unless you have a large tank, you have little time to check prices and I have found these sites are often cheaper. Silvey have a site of their own which is also slightly cheaper than their order office . Thanks for your interest. Oil prices are of course regional.
