New Field Whois Registrar + Filter
The field contains the registrar name from the whois (if possible!). For some tlds like com/net it works very well, but some tlds do not name the registrar in the whois and for some tlds I do not always do a whois. So the field sometimes contains no data or replacement data (e.g. a nameserver). You can find the column in the column manager and there is a filter for it. The filter does a contains search without splitting the search term! Searching for "network solutions" will not search for "network or solutions", but "network+solutions". That also means you can only search for one registrar at a time!
