RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

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

Daily Stormer[edit]

GoDaddy was the long-term hoster of the neo-Nazi white supremacist website The Daily Stormer. In response to the murder of Heather Heyer at Unite the Right rally on August 12, 2017 The Daily Stormer published an offensive article which called the woman a "Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut."[1] After publicity about the defamatory article GoDaddy said the article “could incite additional violence” and thus violated their terms of service. On August 14, 2017 they gave the website 24 hours to move to another hosting provider.[1][2]

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

Gab[edit]

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". Bowers posted 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. Nearly 20 of his posts used the n-word.[5][6]

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

Rightpedia[edit]

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 child abuse images.[12]

Pharisees.org[edit]

Extreme fringe site in which Paul is a heretic (Anti-Christ Jew Pharisee Paul), all his followers are "Children of Hell" and how the big bad Catholic Church was behind Christianity. The overall design is atrocious, and it might be on par with Time Cube. There's also bizarre predictions which say Steve Bannon will be a president, and that Pope Benedict will return to be the 6th king of Revelation after Francis dies. It's really convoluted but the point is WAKE UP, leave the churches, and follow the law.[1]
