Read the whois manpage. You can either use the -c option with a configuration file or a specific host with the -h option.

Thanks, actually im runing a script which rotating various TLDs, so i thought it can be better to just replace non working tucows by something working? but what is it and where to edit?

There is no standard for replacing "non-working". Your ISP (or some other entity) appears to be redirecting whois requests to

This is not under your control unless you specify a specific whois provider using the command line options which I previously told you about.

You were right fpmurphy, it was my firewall.

It was because of Config Server Firewall. When i added port 43 into allowed outgoing ports (on the top of the /etc/csf/csf.conf) and restarted csf by: csf -r

it then started to work
