Bahnhof and Wikileaks

Wikileaks principal host was on servers. Amazon stopped hosting earlier this week. But Wikileaks had back-up servers including at Bahnhof one of Sweden's largest ISPs and a partner in São Tomé's national domain holder. Wikileaks used the firm everydns ( to provide DNS services (i.e. resolving web addresses to IP addresses).

I am in formed that everydns has stopped providing DNS services for them early Friday morning due to Denial-of-Service attacks and hence Wikileaks is offline.

I also noted this morning that the UK Guardian newspaper's Wikileaks blog was offline but seems to be back up now ...

I am assured that they will switch dns-provider.
