I was able to connect to the thisisrisk.com site.  I got a "coming soon"
page from register.com.

Register.com's nameserver appears to be configured as a primary server for
the domain.  If that's not what you want, and they should be transferring
the domain from your server, you need to contact them and get them to
reconfigure (I don't know offhand if they offer secondary DNS service,

I tried querying the ns.gypsystar.com server, but it didn't respond to DNS
or ping.  So as far as the rest of the Internet is concerned, the
register.com nameservers are the only ones that matter.
