In previous posts, we’ve shown how useful SecurityTrails can be to search the WHOIS database using mailing addresses. And today, we have something really cool to show you that is directly related to the geographic location of any website.

Have you ever wondered how to find the most popular websites from any city in the world?

Trying to do it the old way would be a complex process. You would have to do some serious digging to find which sites belong to a specific city, combining various SEO tools and ranking checkers to get the desired information.

Luckily, DNSTrails is the perfect all in one tool that not only combines useful DNS, IP, and WHOIS historical information, but also integrates perfectly with Alexa, one of the best platforms to measure website popularity and traffic around the world.

How can I find the most popular websites in a city?

Just follow these steps:

  • Go to DNSTrails.com
  • In the search field, enter siemens.com, or any domain you like.
  • Scroll to the WHOIS Information block.
  • In the Admin Contact column, click on the number that appears to the right of the name of the city.

Alternatively, you can always use this direct URL: securitytrails.com/list/by-city/Munich?page=1. Just change the name of the city and that’s all.

Your results will be ordered starting with the most popular websites ranked by Alexa. In this example, you can see the most popular of the total of 223,943 websites based in Munich:
