Perhaps this TLD has no whois server?

See <http://www.issociate.de/domain_eng_gl_Greenland.php>:
| Whois Server
| None listed.

That may be plain wrong.

Because there is no such possibility to query a web database?

gwhois can query the whois web database for .fm; it tries to query a
web database at search.greennet.gl for .gl, but fails to do so.

Yes. That means that domaintools.com is wrong.

Nothing, if there is no whois server for .gl.
