U.S.-based registrar has taken no action against WikiLeaks.org domain name, but is facing pressure from both sides.
Amazon booted Wikileaks from its cloud hosting services. Everydns kicked out the site thanks to distributed denial of service attacks. But the domain name WikiLeaks.org remains in the hands of the underground organization as domain name registrar DynaDot has not taken any action on the domain.
Earlier today I reached out to DynaDot founder and president Todd Han. I asked him if his company had taken any action with regards to the domain name and if it was facing pressure to do so. Han responded:
Yes, wikileaks.org is still registered at Dynadot. As you can tell from the whois lookup, we have taken no action against the domain. And yes we are experiencing significant pressure regarding the domain, both to keep it up and to take it down.
Dynadot previously faced a court order to remove the name servers for the domain, but it was later reverse.
