After learning that Bowers posted to 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 acknowledged via Twitter.
