Web Host Complied with Court Order, WikiLeaks Says

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – A new revelation is giving a glimpse at U.S. officials’ efforts to investigate document leaking group WikiLeaks. Recently, the organization revealed that prosecutors had received a court order to obtain information from Dynadot, WikiLeak’s web host.

The group says the order was filed in January. According to reports, the revelation came from the group’s Twitter page. WikiLeaks also indicated that when it came to the order, Dynadot cooperated.

The web hosting provider is headquartered in California and started in 2002.

On Thursday, Reuters reported that WikiLeaks had announced it was releasing a large amount of cables pertaining to the United States. The leaking organization has been at odds with countries including the U.S. for revealing unauthorized information pertaining to governments.

Meanwhile, the group’s leader, Julian Assange is currently facing extradition to Sweden where he faces criminal allegations. Assange is fighting the move and remains in the United Kingdom.
