Apologies, sometimes I can be a bit short in my answers.

The whois command line utility I pointed you to comes with
a lot of Linux distro's, and it trys a variety of domain information
sources to return the whois information in a domain or IP address.
ie, its does what you want.

the 'whois' commandline utility tells me Registrar, Admin contact, Tech
DNS servers, Domain Status etc.
