WikiLeaks domain terminated, moves to Swiss domain, prepares for Twitter ban

The domain name provider of WikiLeaks, EveryDNS.net, has said that it has terminated the wikileaks.org domain as the domain has come under massive cyber attacks. As the website started releasing more than 250,000 diplomatic cables, the pressure against the whistle-blowing organization has been increasing from all over the world. The website is renamed wikileaks.ch (a Swiss domain).

The website now features a message "Keep us strong help wikileaks keep governments open," beside a photo of its founder Julian Assange.
