We can identify the hosting name by its nameserver. Unfortunately, some website owners decided to give away the nameserver control to a third-party service like Cloudflare. Hence, the real IP address is masked and cannot be seen by the public. Not only that, but website owners can also use a custom nameserver inherited from the website name.

If this is the case, you may reach the website owner and ask them about the hosting service.
