GoDaddy drops white nationalist altright.com website

Share:

GoDaddy, the Scottsdale-based web-hosting company, has dropped Altright.com, a website founded by white nationalist Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute, saying the site encouraged and promoted violence.

A statement from Ben Butler, GoDaddy’s director of global policy, said, “It is our determination that altright.com crossed the line and encouraged and promoted violence in a direct and threatening manner.” Butler’s statement said that while GoDaddy respects freedom of expression, it will act when a website “crosses over to promoting, encouraging, or otherwise engaging in specific acts of violence against any person.” A civil-rights group, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said it sent a letter last month to GoDaddy CEO Scott Wagner requesting that the company take action against altright.com.

As of this writing altright.com is still offline.
