You should deal with a registrar for this information, since that is one
of the services they can provide for you.

If you are interested in the cross-reference list, please see
http://www.pir.org/whois_search/registrar_whois_ids, which can be
accessed via the link at http://www.pir.org/whois_search/.

In addition, if you choose to use the web-based whois, then you can use
the link on the whois output for the registrar - so for example, the
domain nanog.org is at
domain+NANOG.ORG, and using the link for Sponsoring Registrar, in this
example "NSI(R63-LROR)" will give information on how to reach the
registrar - see

I will pass on your offer of career advice ;-)

During the recent changes to .org, whois stopped being useful for what 
I need.

 > Sponsoring Registrar:R11-LROR

All I really want to know is the Registrar's name/URL to tell my client 
so they can modify their nameservers.

Does anyone have:

1) A URL to the table that will allow me to lookup a name from the 
above code (or better, a hack to whois that will do said lookup for 

2) The e-mail address  where I should my suggestion that the person who 
came up with this brilliant scheme needs to pursue a new career in a 
non-IT related field?
