Neo-Nazi website banned by Google gets Russian web domain

Share

Despite the reference to Heyer, the article calling her a "slut" and a "drain on society" was still on the website.

GoDaddy announced on Monday morning that it gave Daily Stormer a time limit of 24 hours, during which it would have to move its domain to another provider. Who would have thought.

The news wire service reported that a "whois" search showed Google as the Daily Stormer's registrar.

Specifically, an article published by The Daily Stormer mocking the victim of the auto attacking Charlottesville violated GoDaddy's terms of service by inciting violence, according to the company.

The Daily Stormer is a neo-Nazi, white supremacist website associated with the alt-right movement. A man drove a vehicle into a crowd of white nationalists rallying in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The hosting company that previously served The Daily Stormer web pages have notified the site that they will have to transfer to a new host, as they revealed in a tweet on Monday, Aug. 14.

At one point yesterday it appeared the site had been hacked by the Anonymous collective - but others claimed the "takeover" was staged by the site's owner. The decision was taken as the website violated its terms.

It's unclear where the Daily Stormer will try to go next - or even how many of its troubles are self-inflicted.

A pair of Twitter accounts linked with Anonymous, however, said that the post was a false flag operation by Anglin.

According to Race, their company only provides the domain registration and does not host the Daily Stormer's white-supremacist content.

Anonymous has not publicly confirmed any involvement, but a message on the hate website claims to be from the hacker.

In the Daily Stormer post, Anglin characterized Heyer as dying in a "road rage incident".
