Parler's partial return to the internet this week appears to have been aided by a Russian-owned hosting and web security business called DDos-Guard.

The site was pulled offline last Monday in the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol riots, as tech firms said it was not properly moderating posts from its users. Amazon Web Services (AWS) stopped hosting, and Parler's app was removed by Apple and Google.

So it was not immediately clear how a message had appeared on its URL last Saturday, with CEO John Matze assuring users it would be "back soon." He told Fox News he was "confident" that Parler could have its hosting restored by the end of January.
