Website sets up DNS server for its dns entries with low ttl, so it gets
asked every time. Trace where requests come from: gotcha. Depending on
the DNS setup you get the ISP or even more detailed info (i run my own
resolver, for instance).

Advanced (and hard these days): Return different addresses for each
request, depending on source.
