Owner transfers domain name to Google’s domain name registrar.
Google has landed a hot potato. [Update: and now it’s getting rid of it]
After GoDaddy told white supremacist site The Daily Stormer it needed to find a new domain name registrar, the owner transferred the domain name to Google’s domain name registrar.
It’s important to note that the process for transferring domain names is automated, so Google likely had no knowledge that the domain name was being transferred to its domain name registrar. (I’m reaching out to Google for comment.)
Google is merely the registrar for DailyStormer.com and is not involved with hosting the content that the domain name points to.
So now DailyStormer.com is Google’s problem, and the company is sure to take heat for it.
