Why is whitehouse.gov hosted in GERMANY?

Posted on 04/03/2009 2:30:16 PM PDT by ml/nj

Why is whitehouse.gov hosted in GERMANY? I'm asking.

Does anyone have any idea? This question was posed by Scott on a closed list I am on. I think it deserves a wider audience.

The image I've presented here comes from http://en.utrace.de/?query=www.whitehouse.gov

Not being at all domain tech savvy, I have no clue what this means. Pray whatever steps that can be taken to protect us are done, if it is un-American in intent.

It’s made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff.

You'll love my nuts.

But, hey, we can't do this all day you know.

It means that the physical location of the White House Gov server is now in Germany. If Obama closes down he internet
( he can according to new law) The WHitehouse gov site will still be operational as an off shore site.

Not sure if he lives there now, but isn’t that where he lived while a Nazi sympathizer?

No it doesn't. According ARIN, I ping a Cambridge, Mass. address. All it means that the site is mirrored/cached on machines distributed around the country and world.

That, in and of itself, is not a sinister plot. Just good design for a globally accessed site.

Because Merkel wants to be “all buddy buddy” with everyone in her election year. But then again... the Turkish President didn´t get a smile from her at the receipton yesterday, and the Russians aren´t on her “hot list”, too.

But, good news for y´all: Germans love America again (thanks to Barrack Hussein). 73% of Germans say that the US is a close ally they can trust in (78% for France, 68% for UK), while a majority says they can´t rely on China or Russia. lol
