Parler Confirms “Backup Plan” Amid Amazon Pulling Web Hosting Access


On early Sunday afternoon, Parler co-owner Dan Bongino issued a statement on the site about Parler. Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and conservative podcaster, urged Parler users not to abandon the site; the Parler co-owner also explained that while a “temporary disruption” may occur due to Amazon yanking their server, Parler has a “backup plan” and any disruptions will be brief.

A statement from Parler CEO John Matze

The information shared by Bongino earlier today aligns with statements from John Matze, the CEO of Parler.

Matze declared on Saturday night that Parler built “bare metal products” and did not depend upon the “proprietary infrastructure” of Amazon as a means of preparation, should Amazon kick them off their web hosting server.

The Parler CEO then assured fans of the site that multiple providers are currently in competition for Parler’s business. Matze noted that despite the meticulous nature of big tech’s “coordinated attack,” no one should count Parler out.
