Site still down for me, fucking no life aspies.

DNS changes may take up to 24-48 hours before being deployed worldwide.

If you ping bitcoin.org, what IP do you get? ( should be 199.83.129.139 or 199.83.131.8 )

Did not you employ Cloudflare or any other CDN to deal with DDOS ?
Cloudflare requires the site operators to give up the encryption keys to (I believe it is) the https encryption certificate. I am not sure if this is exactly correct, however I know it has something to do with something that a user can look at to validate that they are accessing the website they intend to visit.

Probably just some anti-Foundation skiddie who saw this:
  https://bitcoinfoundation.org/2014/09/bitcoin-org-walk-down-memory-lane/


So you are saying it is not credible that the site is sponsored by the Foundation but claims it is completely independent ... and now people are mad?

The Foundation is welcome to help bitcoin.org.

As for the worry that the Foundation could try to "buy" some control over the website, I was concerned this could happen when we started having recurring costs (server) until we had alternative funding options. So currently, the sponsorship is just a "win-win" for everyone, and the Foundation thus far is only helpful.

Hi,

The process for determining what things get posted on Bitcoin.org is very unclear and it appears to be one person who makes the decisions.  Given those circumstances and the history of the Bitcoin Foundation I certainly believe the Foundation effectively runs the site.  Vague posts by people within the inner circle do not really clarify anything.

As for the DNS you set the TTL low so you can change IP's during a DDOS so it won't take 24-48 hours for most people to switch if it is that bad.

As for clouflare, you do have to give them the SSL keys because they process the web site traffic.  Nobody is entering personal information and it is a static web site so it is unclear what the issue is there.  As far as I can tell that was an excuse used by Bitcointalk when they kept getting hacked and nobody did anything.
