Founder of controversial WikiLeaks organization now owns Wikileaks.com domain name.
Last week I wrote about how the domain name wikileaks.com had expired.
The domain name was registered by Wikia, Inc, the group behind Wikipedia, for defensive reasons after the official WikiLeaks site Wikileaks.org launched.
Wikia was trying to hand the domain name over to WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, but Assange failed to accept the transfer and the domain name expired on January 3, 2011.
Just today the domain name was renewed and is now registered to Julian Assange, according to whois information.
The DNS for the domain name has not been updated and it still points to a holding page.
