Google, GoDaddy ban top neo-Nazi website

Google has cut its ties with a top neo-Nazi website less than a day after GoDaddy did the same.

“We are cancelling Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service,” a Google spokesperson told NPR on Monday.

The website, the Daily Stormer, had been banned late Sunday by GoDaddy, one of the Internet’s largest domain and web hosting companies.

“We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service,” GoDaddy said in response on Twitter to a user pointing out an article about Heather Heyer.

Heyer, 32, died after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of protestors in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday afternoon. The Daily Stormer’s story hinted that she died in a “road rage incident,” and also insulted her looks.

The Daily Stormer was given 24 hours by GoDaddy to move their content to a new domain name, and failed to do so.

On Monday afternoon, the Daily Stormer’s founder Andrew Anglin announced he had “retaken control of the site” after posting an article claiming it had been hacked.

The Daily Stormer had promoted Saturday’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, which was in protest to the upcoming removal of a Confederate monument.

It is unclear who is currently hosting TheDailyStormer.com‘s domain, but the website is up and running as of late Monday afternoon.
