U.S. servers for Georgia sites
The website of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was moved to a U.S. hosting facility this weekend after Russian hackers attacked it, Nino Doijashvili, chief executive of Atlanta-based hosting firm Tulip Systems Inc., said Monday.
The original servers in the country of Georgia were “flooded and blocked by Russians” over the weekend, Doijashvili said.
The Georgian-born Doijashvili said she transferred president.gov.ge and rustavi2.com, the website of a prominent Georgian TV station, to her company’s servers Saturday.
Doijashvili said the attacks, traced to Moscow and St. Petersburg, were continuing on the U.S. servers Monday.
