Google has canceled the domain registration for The Daily Stormer, a company spokesperson confirmed Monday.
“We are cancelling Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service,” the spokesperson told Business Insider.
Google didn’t want its services used to incite violence, a source close to Google told Business Insider. Daily Stormer registered its domain with Google at 7:51 a.m. Pacific. Google canceled the registration at 11:02 a.m. Pacific, the source said.
Daily Stormer moved its domain registration to Google after it was canceled by GoDaddy on Monday. The white supremacist site published a story that denigrated Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman killed when a car rammed into counter-protesters in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend. The story, which attacked Heyer for her physical appearance and referred to her using various offensive epithets, prompted GoDaddy to give Daily Stormer 24 hours to find a new host for its domain.
Zoho, a company that provides enterprise computing services for companies, also said it was dropping Daily Stormer in a statement on Twitter.
We believe that The Daily Stormer has violated Zoho’s Terms of Service, so its access to Zoho’s services has been terminated. (2/2)
