Although how does one setup a TOR encrypted network to work with a public domain name?
wat

I'm going to bring thus up but in a On topic way:

If you want to keep your server's address a secret(So you can't be attacked), how do you allow people to get to it?

Assuming you want people to be able to get to it via the internet, there is no way to totally prevent an attack.  I would recommend using some sort of VPN, with strong authentication.  In any case, Top Secret data should not ever be accessible in any way over the internet.

Exactly, which is why I'm confused about Steve's mention of "Use TOR".  Tor isn't going to stop your server from being hacked because you need non-TOR users to be able to access it.
And even if you DID make some kind of encrypted TOR network that allowed anyone who uses TOR to type in a specific code that will access the encryption pipe TOR uses that leads specifically to the server, DOS attacks become so much easier since the whole TOR network is slow with normal traffic.  Have a 1,000 client DOS attack and you can bring all of TOR down.
You have been ignored for common interest of mankind.

I am a terrible person and I am a typical Blowhard Liberal for being wrong about Bom.

Tor allows you to set up hidden services, which can be accessed through the Tor network by means of a domain name ending in .onion. They work by having the service that is to be hidden run on a machine that is also running a Tor client, which is then anonymised as per normal.

Also, I just looked on the Tor website, and apparently WikiLeaks does, in fact, have a hidden Tor website, accessible at http://sx3jvhfgzhw44p3x.onion/ when using the Tor network.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

WikiLeaks is excellent.

According to Fidel Castro, whom I very much respect, WikiLeaks has produced evidence that has caused me to revise an earlier opinion.  Namely, I mistakenly believed that Osama Bin Laden was killed in December 2001. 

The truth is that Bin Laden is just as much of a CIA agent as Saddam Hussein - neither of which is dead.  I already knew that the Bin Laden family was a business ally of Bush and Cheney back in the 1980's.  Their alliance never stopped.
