Washington (CNN Busness)Parler's website suddenly reappeared online Sunday afternoon with a message from its CEO, John Matze: "Hello world, is this thing on?"

The message, dated January 16, implies that the social network popular with members of the far-right has found a new online hosting platform, after Parler was booted from Amazon Web Services on January 10 in the wake of the Capitol siege.

A temporary status update on parler. com also appeared beneath Matze's message.

"Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform," the status update said.

Parler was ejected from AWS last week following what Amazon has described as dozens of threats of violence that violated Amazon's terms of service.

Parler responded with a lawsuit against Amazon, asking a federal court to block Amazon's decision.
