First, GoDaddy kicked the neo-Nazi blog The Daily Stormer off its domain-name registry. Then, right after the site appeared to stage a fake hack by Anonymous, Google did the same. Today, the blog’s problems only got worse.
The Daily Stormer reportedly retreated to the dark web, turning the site into a Tor Hidden Service — accessible only through a Tor browser — and jumping to Zodiac, a generic domain-name registrant based in China and the Cayman Islands. The domain hunt began after the site published a blog post attacking Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old woman who died when a car rammed into her during a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. In a rare move, Facebook deleted many updates linking to the blog post.
After finding a new digital home, The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin sounded a triumphant note in a post titled, “Anglin Here. I’ve Retaken Control of the Site. The Daily Stormer Never Dies.” But late Tuesday, a Twitter account purporting to belong to The Daily Stormer said its latest registrar had shut the blog down. The site is currently inaccessible, even through a Tor browser.
