Gab, a free speech-orientated social network, has been given five days to change domain services from its provider Asia Registry, who claimed their domain will otherwise be terminated.

In an email, Asia Registry, an Australian company, claimed that the social network violated their "Abuse Policy" and "Australian federal and state anti-discrimination laws, which prohibit public vilification on the basis of race, religion, or ethnic origin."

"Asia Registry's Abuse Policy specifically prohibits use of a domain name in a manner that is discriminatory or hateful," they continued, before warning Gab: "Asia Registry will cancel your domain name registration" if they don't find another provider within five days.

In an email to Breitbart Tech, Gab CEO Andrew Torba claimed, "We have not heard back from Asia Registry."

"We are in the process of transferring to another registry, but unfortunately need to hear back from Asia Registry first to do so," he continued. "We have also secured numerous alternative domains in the event that our domain is seized."
