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


      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
