Why does whois fail on  .ru at whois.ripn.ru

markgiles

If I try a whois lookup on a .ru domain, DNSStuff fails to get a resolution in whois.ripn.ru

Example:  www.dnsstuff.com/tools#whois/type=domain&&value=ruld.ru&&

Results for Target: ruld.ru

WHOIS Snapshots

 

WHOIS Server:whois.ripn.ru

No WHOIS Snapshots

 

 

Other WHOIS tools work fine,

example who.is/whois/ruld.ru

It looks like the wrong whois server has been automatically chosen when left to default
