GoDaddy tweet

GoDaddy has informed The Daily Stormer, a supposed leading white supremacy site, to find a new web host following a denigrating post against Heather Heyer who was killed in Charlottesville this weekend after a man drove his car into a crowd of people, including counter-protestors, walking down a street.

"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," said a GoDaddy spokesperson on Twitter.

Controversy broke out after The Daily Stormer published an article that used insults and obscenities when discussing the death of Heather Heyer. GoDaddy was then notified of this post and in response issued the statement that The Daily Stormer had 24 hours to find a new home.

Following the publication of the vile article, the site immediately became a victim of hackers, but most DDoS attacks didn't make a dent, as the site was well protected behind a Cloudflare firewall.

On Monday, a post [mirror 1, 2] appeared on The Daily Stormer titled "END OF HATE: ANONYMOUS NOW IN CONTROL OF DAILY STORMER #TANGODOWN," suggesting Anonymous hackers have taken over the site.

Nonetheless, the leading Anonymous Twitter account denounced the hijack, claiming no Anonymous member had officially taken credit, and The Daily Stormer might have been behind its own hack.

On the other hand, various divisions of the Anonymous hacker collective have been busy targeting the official websites of various Charlottesville government institutions with DDoS attacks in an operation named #OpDomesticTerrorism.

The group said they attacked these websites because they allowed a white supremacy protest to take place in the first place.
