Reverse It with Reverse Domain Name Lookup

When a visitor comes to your website, their visit is logged with information that allows you to perform a reverse domain name lookup (your PC should be equipped with a small program called "ping" that is accessible from the dos prompt).

If you type in "ping", you'll find that it will return information including the IP. In the case of web logs, you will have the IP, and, by typing in "ping -a " (where IP ADDRESS is the actual numeric IP), you can reverse lookup the domain name of the provider that person came from.
