The Daily Stormer is no more so I give you the Pale Stormer

By Christopher R Rice


TORONTO (Reuters) - Neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer had its domain registration revoked twice in less than 24 hours, in moves that threatened to take it offline if it does not find a replacement for GoDaddy and Google, which both said the site had violated their terms of service.

GoDaddy Inc (GDDY.N) disclosed late on Sunday via Twitter that it had given The Daily Stormer 24 hours to move its domain to another provider, saying it had violated GoDaddy's terms of service. The white supremacist website, associated with the alt-right movement, helped organize the weekend rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent.

GoDaddy feared the site might be used to incite further violence after the events in Charlottesville, including the death of Heather Heyer, who was fatally struck by a car allegedly driven by a man with white nationalist views.

"With the violence that occurred over the weekend, the company believed this site could incite additional violence," said the person who was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

The Daily Stormer responded by moving its registration to Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google Domains, which offers transfers through an automated online process that the Internet company says typically takes 20 minutes or less to complete.

The domain was registered with Google shortly before 8 a.m. California time and the company announced plans to revoke it at 10:56 a.m., according to somebody familiar with the revocation.
"We don't want our services to incite violence," said the person.

It was not immediately clear when Google's move would take effect. The Daily Stormer was online and its Internet registration listed Google Inc as the registrar as of midday California time.

GoDaddy has previously faced sharp criticism for hosting The Daily Stormer and other sites that spread hate.

The internet hosting company's rules of conduct ban using its services in a manner that "promotes, encourages or engages in terrorism, violence against people, animals or property."

Meanwhile, Cloudflare, a private firm that also provides internet services to The Daily Stormer, declined to say if it was looking at severing ties.

"Cloudflare is aware of the concerns that have been raised over some sites that have used our network. We find the content on some of these sites repugnant," the company said in a statement.

"While our policy is to not comment on any user specifically, we are cooperating with law enforcement in any investigation," it added.

Daily Storm publisher Andrew Anglin could not be reached for comment. 

Google drops neo-Nazi site out of ‘immediate concern of inciting violence’
By Daniel Howley 

Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is cancelling the domain for the white supremacist site Daily Stormer due to a “specific, immediate concern about inciting violence,” a spokesperson told Yahoo Finance.

The search-engine giant, which hosts website domains through its Google Domains service, made the decision to cut the cord to the hate site after GoDaddy (GDDY) told the Daily Stormer it had 24 hours to move to another domain hosting service.

GoDaddy, which has been criticized in the past for hosting such website domains, decided to cancel Daily Stormer’s domain following a post that was critical of a woman who was run down by a car at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

Daily Stormer immediately made headlines on Monday morning when it moved its domain to Google. 

A Google spokesperson initially explained that the Daily Stormer’s domain was being cancelled for violating Google’s terms of service. There’s no mention of inciting violence in the company’s terms of service document, though, it does state that Google can reject a domain’s registration at its own discretion.

A website’s domain is the name that tells your browser where to look in the vastness of the internet for the content you’re seeking. Yahoo’s domain, for example, is Yahoo.com. Without domains we would have to type in the internet protocol address, a long string of numbers and decimals, to point our browser to specific sites.

Without Google to host its domain, the Daily Stormer will have to seek out another hosting service. Chances are it won’t have much trouble doing so, though, as there are still plenty of domain registration services available.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which keeps track of hate groups, calls Daily Stormer the “top hate site in America.” Following the events in Charlottesville, self-identified members of the hacker collective Anonymous took aim at the Daily Stormer, posting that they had taken control of the site and indicating that they would shut it down completely in 24 hours.
