$ whois -h whois.completewhois.com sedgq.com

[DOMAIN whois information on SEDGQ.COM ]
   Domain Name: 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
   Whois Server: rs.internic.net
   Name Server[from dns, whois+dns ip]: YNS1.YAHOO.COM 66.218.71.205
   Name Server[from dns, whois+dns ip]: YNS2.YAHOO.COM 216.109.116.20

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
