Stormfront.org : 1995 white supremacy domain gets shut down

Directnic

Stormfront.org, a domain hosting a white supremacy web forum since 1995, appears to have been seized by its Registrar, Network Solutions.

The forum went offline on Friday and the domain’s status is currently “under hold.”

A hold status indicates a domain is facing a legal dispute, or about to be deleted.

Network Solutions is also prohibiting the update, transfer or deletion of the domain name, Stormfront.org.

The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law claimed responsibility for the incident, stating in its document to Network Solutions, that 100 murders motivated by hatred can be traced back to Stormfront users.

The incident was first reported by the USA Today network.

Stormfront.org follows on the heels of the Daily Stormer saga, which was disabled after a post disparaging Charlottesville victim, Heather Heyer.
