so if you register an address, will tell you who createded te site or where it is registered to.

will simply tell you the name of the person to whom the domain name is registered - which is not necessarily the name of the person who operates a website on the domain name.

Very often the registered name will be that of a web-designer, or even someone from the company that hosts the site.
