WikiLeaks out for hours after U.S. firm pulls plug

• Reuters
 

An American company that had been directing traffic to the WikiLeaks website withdrew its services late Thursday, making the site invisible for several hours.

EveryDNS.net, which helps computers locate the sites of its members, said WikiLeaks had breached its terms of service, and that it had stopped providing services to the controversial publisher of leaked information at 2200 Eastern time Thursday (0300 GMT on Friday).

However, WikiLeaks announced Friday on Twitter that it could be seen using a new address, wikileaks.ch , which is operated by a Swiss academic network.
