8chan, the internet message board known as a home for extremist content, went down early Monday morning after it was linked to the Texas Walmart shooting where 22 people were killed.




It was brought down when cloud company Cloudflare decided it would no longer allow 8chan to use its service.




However, it came back online later on Monday after it secured the services of BitMitigate, a competitor to Cloudflare.




That doesn't seem to have lasted long: 8chan went back offline Monday after service provider Voxility cut off access to BitMitigate and the websites it hosts including neo-Nazi publication The Daily Stormer. 8chan appears to be offline once more.

8chan, the notorious online message board used by the suspect in the mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas that killed 22, is offline once again after a second service provider pulled the rug out from under it.
8chan went offline early Monday morning after Cloudflare, the cloud networking and cybersecurity company, cut ties with the message board. Just a few hours later, though, 8chan was back up and running, thanks to a Cloudflare competitor called BitMitigate.
However, that too didn't last long: BigMitigate's service is hosted from a cloud platform company called Voxility which said Monday on Twitter that BitMitigate is now "blocked completely."
