All the gTLD registrars register their names with a common registry that
NSI operates, named whois.crsnic.net (whois.nsiregistry.net is another name
for the same address). Included in this registry is the name of the whois
server for the registrary that registered the domain.
This is how the registrars avoid trying to assign the same name.
