GoDaddy, the web-hosting company, has announced that the Neo-Nazi website, Daily Stormer, has violated their terms of service and will no longer be hosted.
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.

The announcement came as a response to Amy Siskind’s call for the site to be removed after they posted a story denigrating Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed by a neo-nazi, during a White-Nationalist (Nazi) protest, who committed a terrorist attack in Charlottesville, Virginia, by driving a car into a crowd of counter-protestors.
The Washington Post released a statement from a GoDaddy spokesperson who said the article could “incite additional violence” and was in violation of their terms of service.
This morning (August 14) it was also reported that the website with the article on it was taken over by hackers who are part of the group, Anonymous. Anonymous have been denying the claims online and have stated they’re “99% confident that this is a completely false stunt by [Daily Stormer] derps. Still not anyone taking credit, despite feelers.”
We are 99% confident that this is a completely false stunt by DS derps. Still not anyone taking credit, despite feelers.
