Parler Site Goes Offline After AWS Terminates Hosting
American microblogging and social networking service Parler goes offline after Amazon web services terminate its cloud computing support.
Parler hasn’t been able to find other suppliers willing to step in because of the negative publicity stemming from the violence, organized in part on its own platform.
“We will likely be down longer than expected,” Matze wrote in a post on his network before Amazon restricted hosting. “This is not due to software restrictions — we have our software and everyone’s data ready to go. Rather it’s that Amazon’s, Google’s and Apple’s statements to the press about dropping our access has caused most of our other vendors to drop their support for us as well. And most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us. We will update everyone and update the press when we are back online.”
“Parler is my final stand on the Internet,” he wrote. “I won’t be making an account on any social. Parler is my home.”
