NEW YORK (AP) - The WikiLeaks website has left its U.S. Web host, Amazon.com, and moved back to a Swedish provider.
The site, which just released a trove of sensitive U.S. State Department documents, took up residence on Amazon.com Inc.’s self-service Web servers after a rash of Internet-based attacks started Sunday against its regular Swedish host, Bahnhof.
The attacks made access to the site a hit and miss affair. The site was also unavailable for hours on Wednesday, as Amazon’s servers stopped responding to requests.
Amazon.com would not comment on its relationship with WikiLeaks or whether it forced the site to leave. Messages seeking comment from WikiLeaks were not returned.
