Wikileaks Changes Domain Amid Pressure


Wikileaks has been forced to change its web address after EveryDNS.net, the company providing its domain name, cut off service.

EveryDNS.net said that the termination of services to Wikileaks web site was effected pursuant to, and in accordance with, the EveryDNS.net Acceptable Use Policy.

More specifically, EveryDNS.net said that the services were terminated in the 1st of December for violation of the provision which states that "Member shall not interfere with another Member's use and enjoyment of the Service or another entity's use and enjoyment of similar services." The interference at issues arises from the fact that wikileaks.org has become the target of multiple distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks, the DNS provider said. These attacks would threaten the stability of the EveryDNS.net infrastructure, the company added.

EveryDNS said that notices were sent to Wikileaks via Twitter and the chat function available through the wikileaks.org website.

"Any downtime of the wikileaks.org website has resulted from its failure to, with plentiful advance notice, use another DNS solution," the DNS provider said.

EveryDNS.net has also disabled the secondary DNS hosted domains, including wikileaks.ch.

However, Wikileaks has already reappeared using a Swiss web address. There is also a published list of mirror sites, which Wikileaks hopes will provide constant access to the site.

The United States is furious about WikiLeaks' publication of hundreds of confidential diplomatic cables that have given unvarnished and sometimes embarrassing insights into the foreign policy of the United States and its allies.

In France, Industry Minister Eric Besson has called for a ban of Wikileaks on French servers.
