Apparently, there is no whois server for .es, and instead jwhois has
been using a CGI based server to extract whois information. However, it
now seems that the .es NIC have changed the URL for this service, and
furthermore, have now put image validation on it:


Unless someone knows of a working whois server for .es that doesn't
require image validation, not much can be done about this problem, other
than lobbying the Spanish NIC organisation to provide a decent system
for finding information.
