The American website "Daily Stormer", which serves neo-Nazis, is no longer available online. Tech firms have boycotted providing it a domain.

The companies GoDaddy and Google decided to cancel the website's registration in response to an article full of insults about the woman who was murdered during Saturday's protests against a demonstration by white racists in Charlottesville, VA. Reuters reports that it is no longer possible to access the website from computers located in either Asia or North America.

The server's difficulties began when it attacked the 32-year-old defender of minority rights, Heather Heyer, who was murdered in Charlottesville during Saturday's anti-racist demonstration by a white radical who hit her with a car. The founder of the xenophobic website, Andrew Anglin, posted that: “Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness. A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value.”

Anglin's article also used vulgar expressions to refer to the deceased. GoDaddy, one of the biggest American administrators of Internet domains, had faced criticism in the past for its tolerant approach to hateful websites.

The company decided to cancel the Daily Stormer's contract after the article was posted. The website administrators then attempted to register their domain with Google, which also cancelled their registration.

Zeman went on to allege that during the communist regime, Romani people "had to work" and were imprisoned if they refused to do so.
