NEW YORK — 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.
