White-Supremacist Site Daily Stormer Booted by Hosting Provider

Neo-Nazi hate website the Daily Stormer has been cut off by its domain-name hosting provider after it posted a vile defamation of Heather Heyer, the woman murdered Saturday in Charlottesville, Va., at a white-supremacist rally.

GoDaddy, the service provider that had hosted the domain name for the Daily Stormer since the site was launched four years ago, said in Twitter posts Sunday night that the site violated the terms of service and that its service is being terminated. The removal of the site from the internet’s domain-name system will make “dailystormer.com” unreachable.

“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.

[UPDATE: Daily Stormer switched to Google Domains, but the internet company later Monday also removed Daily Stormer from its domain-name registry. “We are cancelling Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service,” a rep said.]

The website’s post about Heyer carried the headline “Heather Heyer: Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut.” The Daily Stormer was one of the organizers of the “Unite the Right” white-nationalist assemblage in Charlottesville.

Heyer died after she was struck by a car authorities said was driven by white nationalist James Alex Fields Jr., who was arrested Saturday and charged with second-degree murder and other criminal counts. At least 19 other people who were protesting the white nationalist rally were injured by Fields’ vehicle after it plowed into the marchers, according to press reports.

The Daily Stormer, which calls itself “The World’s Most Genocidal Republican Website,” endorsed Donald Trump’s candidacy for president in 2015. The site posted a story titled “Heil Donald Trump – The Ultimate Savior” after Trump proposed a total ban on Muslim immigration.

Following Trump’s statement about the violence in Charlottesville in which he said “we condemn… this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence that’s on many sides,” the Daily Stormer wrote: “[Trump] refused to answer a question about White Nationalists supporting him. No condemnation at all. When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him.”

Early Monday morning, a post on Daily Stormer claimed the hacker collective Anonymous had hijacked the site and would pull it down within 24 hours. However, @YourAnonNews, a Twitter account affiliated with Anonymous, tweeted that “We have no confirmation that ‘Anonymous’ is involved yet” and speculated that it’s “likely to be the derps from dailystormer engaging in a silly troll to woo their clueless base.”
