Suspicious domain - or not?

I was forwarded a link to, and (although I was 99% sure that the site is legit) decided to check it out with domaintools.

To my amazement I found the WHOIS information to be severely lacking. This, coupled with the fact that it is hosted on a shared server raised my suspicion. In the same time I was baffled because I was pretty sure that this is a legit site.

Turns out that ROTLD protects the WHOIS data via a (pretty lame) CAPTCHA, and this is probably the motive for domaintools not having the information. Interesting...
