Users of Parler were encouraged on Tuesday when the company announced that it had signed up for hosting with Epik; however, a subsequently-released statement from Epik indicated that Epik had not actually agreed to host the platform, and seemed to indicate that Parler had simply signed up for domain registration services like any other company is allowed to do.

When asked by Reuters on Wednesday when users might expect the site to return to operation, Matze responded, “It could be never. We don’t know yet.”

“It’s hard to keep track of how many people are telling us that we can no longer do business with them,” Matze continued.
