From this weekend: @ICANN delays Thick Whois in .com by 6 months #domains $vrsn

These domains are due to switch from a “thin Whois” to “thick Whois” for new registrations in May 2018. This means that instead of the registrar being the source for registrant and contact information, the registrars will pass this information to Verisign instead. Whois queries will call Verisign instead of the registrar.
