Wikileaks.com expires but fate of domain name unknown
Elliot Silver has written a series of articles about Wikileaks.COM, a domain name that was registered at Go Daddy.
Here’s something else that’s interesting: wikileaks.com is expired.
I noticed this after reading a TechDirt article today about how the domain name is owned by the group behind Wikipedia. Wikia registered the domain name defensively after Wikileaks said it would be a “Wikipedia of secrets”.
Since then the company has offered to transfer the domain names to Wikileaks but the latter hasn’t accepted the transfer, according to an article on BBC.
The domain name expired on January 3. Will Go Daddy just let it go through the entire delete cycle? Or will it go to Go Daddy Auctions?
