GoDaddy Inc. is an American internet domain registrar and web hosting company known for hosting alt-right, anti-Semitic, and racist content.

Daily Stormer[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Daily Stormer

GoDaddy was the long-term hoster of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer until 2017. In response to the murder of Heather Heyer at Unite the Right rally on August 12, 2017, the Daily Stormer published an offensive article calling her a "fat, childless 32-year-old slut".[1] After it was brought to light, GoDaddy said the defamatory article "could incite additional violence" and thus violated their terms of service. On August 14, they gave the Daily Stormer 24 hours to move to another hosting provider.[1][2]

The Southern Poverty Law Center noted that GoDaddy drew criticism for "its willingness to provide a domain name for a website dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism".[3]


See the main article on this topic: Gab

GoDaddy hosted the far-right social networking service Gab. After the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, it was revealed that the shooter Robert G. Bowers was using a profile under the name "onedingo", which he used to post anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, and white supremacist material.[4] Many of his posts on Gab expressed racism against African Americans and those in interracial relationships, with 20 of his posts using the word "nigger".[5][6]

On October 29, 2018, GoDaddy informed Gab that the site had 24 hours to move to another domain as violent content violated GoDaddy's terms of service.[7][8][9]


See the main article on this topic: Rightpedia

GoDaddy hosted the alt-right racist wiki Rightpedia from October 2015 onward.[10]

Rightpedia hosted defamatory articles on anti-fascists and politicians written by admin Michael Coombs and owner Eleonora Dubiczki. The website was notorious for its disturbing imagery of dead children.[11] Rightpedia was taken offline in November 2018 after alleged complaints of the website hosting images of child abuse.[12][edit] was an extreme fringe site that operated until 2022,[13] with many anti-semitic and anti-catholic posts, such as calling Paul of Tarsus a heretic Anti-Christ Jew Pharisee and that all his followers are "Children of Hell", and how the big bad Catholic Church was behind Christianity. The overall design was atrocious, on par with Time Cube. There are also bizarre predictions that say Steve Bannon will be president and that Pope Benedict will return to be the sixth king of Revelation after Francis dies. It's really convoluted, but the point is WAKE UP, leave the churches, and follow the law.
