The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi hate group with ties to central Ohio, must find a new website host after it posted an article attacking Heather Heyer, the victim in the Charlottesville attack.

“We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service,” GoDaddy said on Twitter on Monday.

The notice came after The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin posted an article that called Heyer “a 32-year-old overweight slob with no children” and the “definition of uselessness.”

“Childless women are black hole vortexes of public money and energy. Had she not died yesterday, hundreds of thousands of dollars would have been spent on propping-up this gross creature who had failed to do her most basic duty — her only real duty, in fact — and reproduce,” Anglin wrote.

According to the Columbus Alive and the Columbus Dispatch, Anglin is a 2003 graduate of Worthington Kilbourne High School in central Ohio “who runs the world’s most visited white supremacist website.”

Donations to the website had been routed through Anglin’s father’s office in Worthington. After protesters staged pickets, The Daily Stormer now uses a Worthington post office box to accept contributions.

The website reported on Sunday that it had attracted 263,000 unique visitors in the previous 24 hours. The site claimed to have been hacked by Anonymous on Monday — a claim that was debunked as a hoax.

Meanwhile, James Alex Fields, Jr., 20, of Maumee, the man accused of ramming a Dodge Charger into a crowd and killing Heyer, was denied bond.

Bowing to pressure for not unequivocally condemning white supremacists and hate groups, President Donald Trump made brief remarks Monday, two days after the violence in Charlottesville.
