We stumbled across a troubling plea for help from LifeSite News. It appears that their web hosting company has given them hours to get off their server and find someone else to host their website.
Their most recent update is here:
URGENT: LifeSite is under attack (UPDATED)
Update, 11:55 a.m. EST: Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind. We are also exploring legal options to combat Adam Flanders’ campaign of harassment as well as our web-hosting company’s extraordinary decision to give us 12 hours to move our site late on a Saturday evening. We will keep our readers posted.
Here is the original post they made to let their followers know they were in trouble. Note, they stand by the fact that they were not once warned of anything they may have done prior to this termination of service.
October 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – This is extremely urgent. I need to inform you that LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner.
They wrote: “we are implementing our ‘SUSPENSION OF SERVICES’ clause…and giving you 12 hours notice to move your web site operations off of our servers…”
We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.
The company told LifeSite it is acting in response to a months-long campaign of complaints against us by Adam Flanders. Flanders is a convicted sex abuser and homosexual activist who is angered over our reports exposing him and his past. As LifeSite recently reported, he has already succeeded in taking down other pro-family websites by targeting their server companies.
Flanders’ latest complaint is focused on the absurd allegation that LifeSite “has been implicated in a violent hate crime against a gay man and Catholic church,” and that we “instigated property damage and a physical assault.”
Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies. We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.
LifeSite is committed to continue reporting on Flanders and the entire anti-freedom homosexualist lobby.
Please donate now to help us fight this attack on free speech.
We also urge you to pray this issue is resolved quickly and smoothly.
