Wikileaks' server moved to Switzerland

WikiLeaks Friday moved to a new Switzerland address after the American domain name system provider, EveryDNS, withdrawed service to the wikileaks.org.

"Free speech has a number: http://88.80.13.160," said a tweet from Wikileaks announcing the decision to move to Switzerland. (http://wikileaks.ch/)

EveryDNS had claimed in a statement that it dropped the website late Thursday because the attacks threatened the rest of its network.

EveryDNS provides access to some 500,000 websites.

WikiLeaks has angered the US and other governments by publishing secret diplomatic documents recently. Almost half a million secret documents about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were also published by the whistle blower website founded by Assange.

Amazon.com Inc. which provided WikiLeaks with servers to distribute embarrassing state department communications and other documents had evicted it Wednesday. The site remains on servers of a Swedish host, Bahnhof.

The ouster from Amazon came after congressional staff questioned the company about its relationship with WikiLeaks.
