Description Robert Scheck 2009-02-21 22:21:11 EST
Description of problem:
According to IANA (http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/biz.html), the current
authoritative whois server is "whois.biz", /etc/jwhois.conf contains something
else, please change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Actual results:
Whois server is "whois.neulevel.biz".

Expected results:
Whois server needs to be "whois.biz", simply replace in /etc/jwhois.conf.

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.
Comment 1 Vitezslav Crhonek 2009-02-24 08:51:24 EST
It seems that both are working. But I didn't find any mention on "whois.neulevel.biz" at IANA or ".biz" registration page, so it'll be probably better to use "whois.biz" as you suggest.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2009-02-24 09:06:32 EST
"NeuLevel has changed their name and website location." (as per www.nic.biz),
thus I always suggest to use what is marked as official by IANA if possible...
