I just tried to check whois details for a .org domain and it seems that the .org whois server is down and is not responding.
A whois search at PIR, the .org registry, whois search webpage at http://pir.org/services/whois/ returns an error:
Error: No results retrieved from whois2.publicinterestregistry.net server for ******.org domain!
Other online whois services return similar errors:
Connect failed to: org.whois-servers.net
A whois search for the domain name pir.org at DomainTools.com provided a cached whois record and an error message:
Viewing a cached Whois record The Whois registry responsible for this domain name did not provide a valid Whois record. The cached record shown here was current on 01/11/2014. Please check back later for any updates.
This was the result of 4 hour of scheduled downtime from PIR. They alerted all accredited registrars. They completed the maintenance about 25 minutes ago.
It is still down.
Something strange happen at that Registrar
I know a domain expired in 2007, yes, 2007 is the expiration year appearing in the WHOIS, but you can’t register it.
I asked explanations more times during the last years to them and ICANN but I never received a reply. Anyway this time will be different: I will require at least an explanation and if they don’t give me that domain I will send all the screen shots and page saved to a few thousands of blogs and newspapers.
Has anyone ever seen such a thing (a normail domain which seems not reserved by the Registrar but is unregistrable) ?
whois.pir.org server is not responding its just pulling not found could you give solution for .org server
