White supremacist website the Daily Stormer needs to perceive another domain supplier in the wake of getting the boot from GoDaddy. In a tweet, the organization stated, “We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another supplier, as they have damaged our terms of administration and grossly misused our platform.”

The tweet was made in light of one by The New Agenda founder Amy Suskind approaching GoDaddy to boycott Daily Stormer for posting a foul article about Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville on Saturday subsequent to being hit by a car supposedly driven by James Alex Fields Jr. into a group of protestors. Fields has been accused of second-degree murder.

Heyer was among a gathering challenging the Unite the Right racial oppressor rally this end of the week, which the Daily Stormer helped organize and promote.

In an email to TechCrunch, a GoDaddy representative said

We have educated The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another supplier, as they have disregarded our terms of administration and voided their contract. On the off chance that no move is made following 24 hours, we will drop the service. Given this latest article comes on the immediate heels of a violent act, we believe this type of article could incite possible additional violence in the future, which grossly violates our terms of service and misrepresents us as a brand.

GoDaddy just gives the domain to Daily Stormer and does not have access to their web page, which calls itself “The World’s Most Genocidal Republican Website.” While GoDaddy’s activity is praiseworthy, it’s additionally imperative to take note that activists, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, started approaching GoDaddy to quit giving Daily Stormer’s domain several months ago.

GoDaddy joins Airbnb and Twilio as tech companies taking action aimed at combatting hate speech in reaction to the Unite the Right rally. Airbnb deactivated the accounts of several users who were planning to attend the event, while cloud communications platform Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson said it will add “an explicit prohibition of hate speech” in the company’s acceptable use policy this week.
