DailyStormer comes back with Albanian domain; gets booted off

DailyStormer, the neo-nazi and racist website is having a difficult time finding domain on the regular web. For the third time in a month, the website has been booted off from the web due to its indecent and racist content.

In the latest, DailyStormer made a comeback through the Albanian domain provider (dailystormer.al) about three days ago, but it took almost a second for the company to permanently suspend the domain once they came to know the nature of its content.

In a conversation with HackRead.com, Anonymous Albania said that “Members of the Anonymous Albania collective celebrated the decision after the hacktivist collective had flagged up the fact that the Daily Stormer had relocated to a .al domain.”

According to Washington Times report, Albania’s Electronic and Postal Communications Authority (AKEP) asked the  hosting company to remove the site from their service.

“We’re sorry to report that AKEP (the registry of all .AL domains) has gave an order to disable dailystormer.al – This is out of the registrar and our control. The Daily Stormer had violated “clear regulations on racism and hateful agenda,” said AKEP. 

The DailyStormer was first kicked out by GoDaddy and Google after its owner wrote a controversial article about Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old resident of Charlottesville, Virginia who was killed by a white supremacist James Alex Fields Jr during Unite the Right rally.

The site surfaced on the Dark Web and announced that it successfully bought a new domain on a Russian domain provider under a .RU address, but it took a couple of days for the Russian authorities to kick the site out of its service. At the same time, CloudFlare removed its DDoS protection after the company’s CEO Matthew Prince called the DailyStormer as “Assholes.”

Moreover, DreamHost hosting provider suffered a series of massive DDoS attacks from Anonymous hackers for providing hosting services to punishedstormer.com, a new domain address bought by the DailySotmer owner to make a comeback by laying low with a different name. But following the attacks, DreamHost suspended the site’s account to avoid further controversy.

At the time of publishing this article, all DailyStormer domains were offline while its Dark Web domain was up since TOR decided it will not remove the site from its platform. However, DailyStormer is not the only site facing the aftermath of publishing offensive content. Stormfront, Internet’s oldest neo-nazi website was also booted off three days ago.
