Recently found a nice .ai domain name available for my project on NameCheap, but found that it had been registered when I went to purchase it the next day, with the owner asking me to "place a starting bid" to purchase it from him. I'm worried about front-running attacks on future domain name ideas, and I've read elsewhere that querying domain names directly using something like whois on the terminal is a safer method.

whois does not seem to support querying for .ai domains. Are there any workarounds or alternative methods?
