    Suicidal. the problem with your attempt was the www.

    Whois is for looking up domains.... www. is a subdomain on the domain xtra.co.nz.. you always have to cut it down to the domain and u can only find out who owns that, because what an owner does with their subdomains is entirely up to them..

    If you go back to the Whois Lookup and put just xtra.co.nz you'll see all the information that whois will provide about that domain
