    Is it possible to find out the web hosting company of the web site that
    posted inappropriate personal information?

  2. Most likely yes, by doing a whois lookup [1] for the domain name.

  3. FWIW:

    I'm a rank amateur and usually the net *recipient* of more advice than I'm qualified to give, but
    here is a place you might get started: I haven't used it for a long time, and
    in fact don't have the smarts to use all the stuff it can do, but I think you can find the IP
    address of the web page and it will tell you who the other players are. I think. I used it trying
    to track why emails from a site were being blocked. Never tried it with a web site.
