Dear VDARE.com Reader,

This is very serious—if you do not take action, you may no longer be able to read VDARE.com very soon.

This Monday, June 15th, Network Solutions, our domain name registrar, suddenly gave us 10 days’ notice of its intention to terminate our account, after some 20 years. It gave no specific reasons beyond alleged violations of its Acceptable Use Policy, but said “we consider your continued use of our services a serious issue and risk to our business and corporate reputation.”

What does this mean and what can you do?

A domain name registrar handles the reservation of web addresses. Without registration, VDARE.com would be inaccessible on normal web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge.

Thanks to our patriotic donors (join them here!), VDARE.com has pursued its mission of America First non-profit journalism unchangingly since we opened on Christmas Eve, 1999.

So why are we being kicked off Network Solutions now? Because the political environment has changed. The Left’s Reign of Terror is intensifying. It is desperate to keep the immigration issue out of public debate until it succeeds in Electing A New People.

Network Solutions is only the most recent example corporate complicity in the suppression of Free Speech across America. But it’s perhaps the most shocking. To my knowledge, withdrawal of registrar services has never happened to a site as mainstream as VDARE.com.

Moral: No one is safe.

No access to VDARE.com? 

Of course, we’re fighting back. We will never kneel. Our lawyer has challenged Network Solutions. And my team and I are actively searching for an alternative registrar solution. We hope we will find one. But we know it is likely only a matter of time before the new company caves under Antifa pressure, too.

In other words, it’s not impossible now that VDARE.com will indeed ultimately lose registrar services altogether. If that happens, you will NOT be able to access VDARE at the normal "VDARE.com" address!

Introducing the TOR browser: We hope we can find a way to avoid that. But we do urge you to prepare for this terrible day NOW.

If we fail to find a new domain registrar, the ONLY way you will be able to continue reading VDARE.com is via the “Dark Web”—using the TOR browser. But the connotations drawn from the moniker "Dark Web" are misleading. 

TOR is an internet browser focused entirely on user privacy and security, protecting users from having their internet history analyzed for information based on interests and behavior. TOR is also the browser used to access websites that are not indexed by web search engines, not served by domain registrars or that are vulnerable to harm by autocratic governments and other bad actors. We suggest TOR to readers as a prudent workaround in this threatening time.

The most important thing for you to do right now is to save this address: 

f2vfjp3jc37gxgn4hum4uf2bhi2w3kp4jbzdwegrn6bvtezbhminobid.onion

It's VDARE.com’s TOR address. Our entire website is already mirrored there.
