From Russia with love, Parler finds a new host via Latin America

The alternative social media was shut down when AWS dropped Parler as a customer for terms of service violations.



Parler, the alternative social media platform that was shut down after every vendor supporting them abandoned the service, is back up and running. Yesterday, the website was live again, displaying a welcome message.

Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform. We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise their rights to both.

We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!”

In an exclusive phone call with Fox News, Parler CEO John Matze told the network, “I’m confident that by the end of the month, we’ll be back up.”

An Internet security expert told us, “Parler is using DDoS-Guard. Essentially, this is the Russian equivalent to CloudFlare that provides DDoS protection to a number of sites. The IP address is registered to DDoS-Guard with a Belize address, an administrative contact in Ecuador, and a Russian email address.

Last week, Parler secured domain hosting with Sammammish based, Epik Software.

Said our contact in Internet security, “How long until they’re up depending on how long it takes them to get all that done.
