Epik takes in aborted GoDaddy #domain and web site

Domain registrar, Epik, has taken in anti-abortion domain

While the domain resolves, it displays a WordPress Geofence blocking page. The hosted domain’s IP address resolves on the Epik network, which means that Epik is providing some type of virtual hosting space currently.

The domain’s DNS changed a few hours ago after GoDaddy gave Texas Right to Life 24 hours to find a new hosting provider.

Epik is an American domain registrar and web hosting company known for providing services to websites that host far-right, neo-Nazi, and other extremist content. Source: Wikipedia.

What’s at stake: Following the enactment of a controversial law in Texas, women that carry a fetus older than 6 weeks cannot get an abortion on their own decision. Anyone can file a lawsuit in the state of Texas against women who proceed with an abortion later than 6 weeks.

The law raises the responsibilities of anyone assisting abortions, including Uber drivers that might take the woman to the place where an abortion is conducted.

In a nutshell, that’s some scary shit, leading someone to register the domain as a reference to female oppression in the state of Texas.

That domain is currently up for sale at GoDaddy.
