    You answered you're own question maybe whois isnt in you're path ? if not it should be /usr/bin/whois and do a man whois to learn how to use it like to connect to diffrent whois networks etc

    This is what you looking for here and as stated above whois is located at /usr/bin/whois

    Usage: whois [OPTION...] query[@server[ort]]
    valid options:
    -h server server name
    -p port server port
    -t timeout query time limit
    -r force recursion
    -n disable recursion
    -v verbose mode
    -- treat remaining arguments as part of the query
    default server is whois.crsnic.net

    oh for goodness sakes man.

    type

    whois "the stuff your looking up"

    without the quotes of course, and your done, after that, type man whois and read about it for more options.
