    I need to make certain that a website (3 actually) are being hosted/administered by a particular agency. When I "who is" the host is not the company that I expect. Is there a way to track all of this through?

    why don't you ask them?

    whois a domain or address block doesn't really tell you who's hosting it. You might want to search ARIN since the ip_adress block could be "swiped" to a user or hosting company. Once again not a 100% sure means to ID the hosting company.
