Google Domains won’t put up with The Daily Stormer, either.
Google doesn’t want DailyStormer.com, either.
The owner of the white supremacist website transferred his domain name to Google today after GoDaddy told him he needed to transfer it or it would suspend service. But Google doesn’t want anything to do with the domain name, either. In a statement to Domain Name Wire, a Google Spokesperson said:
We are cancelling Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service.
The statement doesn’t give any sort of indication about a timeline for allowing the owner to transfer the domain to another registrar. There are a number of registrars that will be more forgiving to the registration of the domain name, perhaps one outside the United States.
To be clear, Google was only the registrar and not the host of the website.
So who will get the hot potato next? [Update: Google has put the domain in ClientHold status, taking it out of the zone so it doesn’t resolve. This could get really interesting. I wonder if Daily Stormer has recourse? It might come down to what’s in Google’s TOS.]
