Bug Description

When using satori as a library and a netloc such as IP, localhost, hostname are passed to `domain_info` an exception is raised. It appears to be because tldextract returns a blank string ('') which is then passed to pythonwhois, that fails to lookup the root WHOIS server on a blank string:

    from satori.dns import domain_info

    a = domain_info('127.0.0.1')

The result of that would be: "WhoisException: No root WHOIS server found for TLD."

    Add exception `SatoriInvalidDomain`

    When `domain_info` is passed an invalid domain, it would attempt to
    parse the registered domain and eventually pass a blank string to
    `pythonwhois.get_whois`. This causes an exception of "No root WHOIS
    server found for TLD." This is a valid exception, but we should not make
    it this far to get this exception.

    Instead, this patch will raise an exception of `SatoriInvalidDomain` if
    domain_info attempted to be used with an invalid domain.
