NEVADA (VINnews) — The embattled social media network Parler moved its domain name from DreamHost to Epik on Monday, indicating that they may have found a new home.

Epik released a statement yesterday, before the switch, saying that it had not been in touch with Parler since Amazon announced they will be booted from their service. The lenghthy statement criticized big-tech companies for “deplatforming” right-wing users, and may have been designed to attract Parler’s attention.

Parler’s switch to Epik on Monday was noticed by a number of blogs covering the domain name industry.

Epik, known as a staunchly pro free speech copmany, is also the home to Gab.com, as well as the registrar for the domain name for the Proud Boy’s former websites.

The company publicly worked with Gab at a time when they were booted by other registrars.
