Well, folks, it looks like Parler is going to be taken offline, because Amazon is pulling their web services (cloud platform aka AWS). The ban goes into effect on Sunday, January 10, at 11:59pm PST.
It looks like Parler will be working on other options to get the platform back up and running again: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/01/breaking-amazon-kicking-parler-off-web-server-shutting-platform-find-new-host.

Gab is another option, which I have found to have less technical glitches than Parler. And it is a more secure platform. However, they are experiencing issues due to the massive increase of users there, as well. If you’re interested, you can sign up at https://gab.com.
