The Daily Stormer is no more.
Over the weekend, authorities identified 32-year-old Heather Heyer, a paralegal who lived in Charlottesville, Virginia, as the woman who was killed after she was struck by a Dodge Challenger driven by James Alex Fields, who had traveled to the city from Ohio to protest at the “Unite the Right” rally with fellow white nationalists.
Web hosting company GoDaddy said on Sunday it had given The Daily Stormer––which calls itself ”The World’s Most Genocidal Republican Website”––24 hours to move its domain to another provider after the extremist web site published an article slamming Heyer for her physical appearance and accusing her of espousing “anti-white male” views.
We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service.

The posting on the site claims the hackers were acting “in defense of the Jewish people.”
