The troubles for WikiLeaks continue: It seems that wikileaks.ch, the domain that WikiLeaks switched to after wikileaks.org was taken offline for six hours last night, is now also down.

However, users can still reach the site by going directly to this IP address: 213.251.145.96.

EveryDNS, which hosts doman names, released the following statement today:

First, let's be clear, this is a difficult issue to deal with and there are opinions on all sides. Second, EveryDNS.net, the world's largest free managed DNS provider, is not taking a position on the content hosted on the wikileaks.org or wikileaks.ch website, it is following established policies so as not to put any one EveryDNS.net user's interests ahead of any others. Lastly, regardless of what people say about the actions of EveryDNS.net, we know this much is true - we believe in our New Hampshire state motto, Live Free or Die.

Like wikileaks.org, wikileaks.ch had been using EveryDNS as its host.

No comment from WikiLeaks yet on this latest outage, though the new domain name was likely the victim of a fresh wave of cyber attacks.
