AR15.COM Domain Registrar Shuts Them Down, Forced To Switch To First Amendment-Friendly Company

Published

The internet is a wild and free thing, unless you’re pro gun and like to speak your mind. We’ve seen a fair number of crack-downs on numerous places, and the latest casualty is the popular AR15.com website.

AR15.com has issued the following statement:

On Monday, January 11, 2021, I received notice from our site registrar that AR15.com had violated their terms of service and that AR15.com would be shut down immediately. The registrar’s decision to de-platform AR15.com was final and no method to appeal was offered.

It remains unclear specifically what content allegedly violated the registrar’s terms of service. However, I am happy to report that we have found a new, First Amendment-friendly site registrar and we have begun the process of transitioning AR15.com to the new registrar.

We expect the switchover to take up to 5 days. During that time, our famous “AR15.com” URL will not be usable. Once the switchover is complete, AR15.com will be fully restored to normal function.

In the meantime, I welcome freedom lovers and firearm enthusiasts to visit us at our temporary URL: www.ar15-backup.com. We will post on the backup site when the normal AR15.com has been completely restored.

-Juan Avila, President & Co-Founder, AR15.com
