The popular neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer will be moving its domain to the so-called dark web after it was cut off by GoDaddy and then Google, Motherboard reported Tuesday morning.
On the dark web, the site will not need to rely on a domain registrar, according to the report.
The move comes after GoDaddy kicked the site off its service over the weekend. The server had received a number of complaints in responst to an article on the website that mocked Heather Heyer, the protester killed at Charlottesville’s white nationalist rally over the weekend.
Andrew Anglin, the publisher of the website, is facing a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit for mounting an internet campaign against a Jewish woman in Montana. The SPLC has dubbed the Daily Stormer the internet’s “top hate site.”
