Google to ban white supremacist website that was forced out by GoDaddy

A white supremacist website that had its domain name under GoDaddy canceled for attacking the Charlottesville, Va., white supremacist rally victim will now also be forced to move its content out of a Google domain name.

The Daily Stormer, deemed one of the most hateful websites by the Southern Poverty Law Center, was forced to move its content by GoDaddy after the website published a story about the woman who died after a car driven by a man tied to white supremacy groups rammed into a crowd, injuring others in the process as well.

The website reportedly switched to a Google domain name, only to see its registration canceled by Google for the same reason.

A spokesperson from Google confirmed Monday that Daily Stormer's registration will be cancelled.

"We are cancelling Daily Stormer's registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service," according to the statement.

The decision was first reported by Business Insider.

The Daily Stormer published an article that attacked Heather Heyer, 32, for her physical appearance and made disparaging comments about the deceased woman without evidence.

GoDaddy confirmed that the Daily Stormer will not be allowed to keep its content on its platform on Sunday evening.
