    Default RE: Detecting Domain Name

    You can make a stab at getting a domain name via a Reverse DNS lookup. To do that, you need a component that can make the right queries. There are a handful of them out there; I believe that has one (AspDNS? something like that).<BR><BR>HOWEVER...<BR><BR>It&#039s not real reliable. If somebody is coming in from something like AOL or EarthLink you might or might not get that as the domain name, but you certainly won&#039t get any more useful information. And if somebody is sitting behind a proxy server, you&#039ll only see the domain name (*if any*) of the proxy server, so you won&#039t *really* know where they are coming from.<BR><BR>But check out the reverse DNS components that exist. They work and aren&#039t very expensive.<BR><BR>
