"After being effectively booted off the Web by its U.S. domain
name system (DNS) provider, the whistleblower website WikiLeaks has
managed to reemerge on the Swiss domain, where it continues to
publish classified cables detailing the activities of U.S.
diplomats around the world.
"EveryDNS.net, a group providing free domain name services,
terminated WikiLeaks' service followed what it described as a
severe distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.
"On Monday, EveryDNS.net informed WikiLeaks that it would
terminate its service in 24 hours owing to the attack, which it
claimed violated its usage agreement for disrupting other domains
that use the service."
