Daily Stormer binned by yet another registrar, due to business risks


Re: Quick note from easyDNS

Forgive me, for copying and paste my response to the exact same argument over on our blog:

There are over thousands of registrars and pretty well anybody can become one (hell, after the drop catching bubble burst you can buy a registrar now for a few thousand bucks).

They all set their own acceptable use policies and have their own risk tolerance. Somebody running a website that absolutely nobody wants to touch sounds more likely their problem, not the registrars. (Gee, could it possibly be because nobody wants to do business with self-proclaimed fascists spewing utter hatred toward others, including our families and our customers? How unreasonable.)


If DailyStormer really wants somebody to take them on, they’re going to have to pony up a lot of money to do it (expecting some registrar to take on this risk for a $15 annual domain fee is delusional) and at some price level there will either be a taker, or somebody will enter the field to service the need (providing internet infrastructure to Nazis).

(Maybe DS can empty out that bitcoin wallet of theirs with over $80,000 and buy themselves a registrar)

As for us, we’re not interested at any price and that is totally our prerogative.
