This prompted GoDaddy to remove The Daily Stormer from their system for violating their terms of service. The sites also use a GoDaddy-affiliated privacy service called Domains by Proxy, which stops the public from discovering contact information associated with a domain name.
In a weekend post, Daily Stormer described the attack as a "road rage" incident, and said Heyer was "fat" and "the definition of uselessness" because she was "childless".
"We are cancelling Daily Stormer's registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service", the spokesperson told Business Insider.More news: Jay Cutler gives Miami Dolphins a chance to remain contenders
Civil rights activist Heather Heyer, 32, was killed on Saturday when James Fields, a 20-year-old man from OH, plowed his auto into a group of people marching peacefully through downtown Charlottesville against a white supremacist rally in the town.
"We have taken this site in the name of Heather Heyer, a victim of white supremacist terrorism", a message on the site read.
A message on the Daily Stormer this morning suggested the site may have also been targeted by global hacking collective Anonymous over its comments about Heyer.
The Daily Stormer's domain is now reportedly being hosted by Google, according to WHOIS results, which show the domain transferred on Monday.
A few hours later, the Anonymous hack was posted, driving traffic to the website. "We have no confirmation that "Anonymous" is involved yet".
