The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website, is back on the internet under a Russian web domain.

The white supremacist news site lost its address after GoDaddy, which hosted the site, removed it earlier this week for publishing an article insulting Heather Heyer, the woman killed while protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

The site then tried to get a domain with Google, which also banned it from their web services.

The Daily Stormer domain was then hosted briefly on the dark web before getting a Russian domain.


Posts on the website hailed the attention they have received in recent days.

"What has happened is that we’ve been given a massive amount of publicity by the media, and we need to work on capitalizing on that to get our ideas further into the public sphere," the post reads.

"[This is] the greatest thing that’s ever happened to us,” another post read, referring to the media attention the site gained in the past several days.

Prior to GoDaddy’s ban, the fringe website received little web traffic.
