From a domain or IP, how to find out which Hosting Provider they have signed up with?

I did whois on IP and it said it come from net2ez.com but I like to find out which third party Web Hosting (or Dedicated/VPS Hosting) they are with..

There is no way to tell. The only thing you can find out (as you already mentioned) is who the maintainer of the IP block is, by running a whois on the IP. There is no way to tell where it goes from there. There could be a dedicated server behind that IP (client A). They can have hosting packages sold to their clients (Client B). But client B might also be a reseller and have client C who is the actual end-user.

There's no way to trace who all the contractors are, that's an administrative thing and is technically untracable. All you can see it the provider that provides/maintains the IP address.

Although the somewhat larger hosting providers/resellers usually have their own PI space with the original maintainer and thus the whois will show their name.
