[DOMAIN whois information on SEDGQ.COM ]

Namespace: ICANN Unsponsored Generic TLD - http://www.icann.org
TLD Info: See IANA Whois - http://www.iana.org/root-whois/com.htm
Registry: VeriSign, Inc. - http://www.verisign-grs.com
Registrar: Whois data parsing problem, no registrar information found

DomainSEDGQ.COM not found in registry whois server.
But this domain appears to be deligated in dns. This is either an error with
registrar whois database or it is possible this domain was recently registered
and whois data is not yet available. Completewhois domain information above
should list current nameservers as has been found in dns, for more information
regarding this domain, please do whois lookup on these nameservers or ips
