I am currently trying to transfer my .org domain (cmeerw.org) to another
registrar. But GANDI (http://www.gandi.net) has told me that they can't
process the transfer because the whois server of the current registrar is
down - the current registrar is Cronon AG and I guess their whois server is
whois.tmagnic.net. And indeed whois.tmagnic.net doesn't have any information
about cmeerw.org, but all information is available from whois.pir.org.
So my question is: is it sufficient that all information is available from
whois.pir.org or does a .org registrar still have to run its own whois
BTW, DotRegistrar (http://www.dotreg.com) is also unable to process the
domain transfer. And, of course, Cronon AG doesn't respond to my e-mails.
Can anyone shed some light on the issue and clear up the confusion?
