Brian Royce takes over the helm at Epik.
Rob Monster is no longer CEO of domain name registrar Epik.
The company announced today that Brian Royce will succeed Monster in the CEO role. Monster will be Chairman of the Board.
The executive change does not signal a change in direction for the company, which is known for providing services to sites that are kicked off other platforms. In the release, Royce states:
Epik will continue to stand for free speech. It is extremely important to me to see core values of freedom, truth and liberty reflected in all we do at Epik.
I am concerned about free speech as I look at what is happening across America. People are actively trying to silence people like Joe Rogan, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock just for talking and telling jokes.
More conversations, more speech, more debate—that is what makes people more informed and more compassionate.
Royce’s LinkedIn headline says he’s a free speech advocate.
Robert is a visionary.
Mark Thorpe says
Sounds like Rob has a Mini Me of himself as CEO.
I still wouldn’t touch Epik with a ten foot pole.
Credible Intel says
Robert Monster did a horrible job at policing the fuckwits who use Epik’s services to cyberstalk and threaten people.
His relationship to JoeyCamp2020 only underscores that.

Great Times says
The new CEO is accompanied by a ‘slight’ increase in dot COM prices. Epik users are so happy! #BeEpik #BeGreat!
As long as EpiKKK profits accrue to Rob Monster, I will continue to avoid EpiKKK like the plague. If he ever sells it, maybe I will give it a try.

This company is refusing to manually transfer my money. And their pathetic Masterbucks is under maintenance long time… No one dont know when it will be fixed????
I am impartial in political beliefs of friends in the US about Domaining.
Since 2015 have read many post on LinkedIn and Twitter from domain investors and CEOs who think the same as Robert Monster

I have tried to connect with the new CEO for weeks now ,still waiting for a reply I generateed over $160,000 for Epik as a super Affiliate ,I think I deserve an eplantion regarding the ”rebuilding”” of the Aff….
Also ..I dont think that the ordinary Domainer like myself cares about ”free speech”or being ”Deplatformed”
We expect,Good Service,Good Prices,a proper Affiliate program,Masterbucks Withdrawals via PayPal
Free Sidebuilder[aka Dynadot].We allready know from previous emails from an Ex Epik [R.Davis,aka intelliname NP handle and several others]aka the Big intimidator,aka,the Big destroyer,[Some Epik staff used to DM me in despair and ask for help and talk to RobM about him because they were scared of RD.]I wonder how many other Company’s reputation, his big ego and his big mouth have destroyed by now.
And we also don’t need anybody’s prayers.

I generated over $165,000 for Epik as a Super Affiliate and ,I think I deserve an explanation about the ”rebuilding”” of the Affiliate.I have years of screenshots of conversations during my time,and i dont think the new boy would like it when I make them public.Do NOT ever underestimate me ,I have nothing to lose,I only do this because I care about Epik as a company and the jobs they provide for some good staff ,esp in developing countries,the ones that are still there and not have been told to ”stay in your lane”or……Empathy and Respect Before Free Speech.
