    If I have someone on my site, and I can track their IP address, how would I go about finding out who that person is, or what the accountholder's name is?

    I have an idea of what you would like to do but I'm not sure of your capibilites, if you are interested in learning more about the IP Address and tracking an IP Address etc. please private message me.

    Replace THE_IP by the IP address that you want to check, and it will give you details on the netblock owner (generally the user's ISP). You cannot get the person's name with her IP without hacking her, but can at least have an idea by running a WHOIS on that IP using the whois.arin.net server, like the program I sent you the URL to does.
