Gab.com, the website where suspected Pittsburgh synagogue gunman Robert Bowers posted antisemitic views, said it was back up on Sunday evening after being offline for a week while it looked for another registrar to host its domain name.

After learning that Bowers posted to Gab.com before the shooting, GoDaddy Inc asked the site to move to another registrar. Hosting firm Joyent Inc and payment processors PayPal Holdings Inc and Stripe Inc stopped providing services.

Domain name registrar and host Epik said in a blog post on Saturday it had agreed to host the site, which went up shortly after 5 pm EST describing itself as “a social network that champions free speech, individual liberty and the flow of information online.”

Some efforts to reach the site were not successful, however, which Gab.com acknowledged via Twitter.
