Well .fr isn't recognized, either...

[root&#167;yogsothoth /root]# whois ludexpress.fr
[rs.internic.net]
No match for "LUDEXPRESS.FR".

The InterNIC Registration Services database contains ONLY
non-military and non-US Government Domains and contacts.
Other associated whois servers:
   American Registry for Internet Numbers - whois.arin.net
   European IP Address Allocations        - whois.ripe.net
   Asia Pacific IP Address Allocations    - whois.apnic.net
   US Military                            - whois.nic.mil
   US Government                          - whois.nic.gov

to see it, we need :
whois ludexpress.fr&#167;whois.ripe.net
or
whois ludexpress.fr&#167;whois.nic.fr

It seems ccTLD info are added by ccTLD NICs whois servers.

But whois is not DNS...
