Our client is member of a technical team assigned to get their country CCTLD into the Global Whois.

The tld is current live and there is a whois available for this TLD but when clients whom have registered the a domain in the tld try to get a SSL certificate, the CA always has problems getting a whois as they are not aware of the whois address.

How can we advise the client to get their cctld into the global Whois Database?

ICANN is doing that, you can ask RIR for help.

I meant what does RIR mean as an acronym, but never mind, I just did a google search and got Regional Internet Registry.

The CCTLD is an african one and so you must mean Afrinic.

So I have sent them an email.

Lets see if they are the right people to get in touch with

Thanks

Sorry for giving acronyms, if you need me or others to test the result tell the domain of you r your university, maybe we see better from outside.

I got in contact with my RIR - Afrinic and they said
In short, there is no single "public" whois service that you need to be part of. I see that your whois service is listed at http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/ng.html. Perhaps many developers of several whois client software will pick it up gradually for inclusion in their future versions


Thanks for the help
