"We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service," the company said in a tweet to Amy Siskind, the president of women's advocacy group The New Agenda.

Siskind had called out the company for hosting the neo-Nazi website after it published an article to attack the victim of Saturday's attack. Siskind's call for the website to be taken down received more than 3,000 retweets in less than two hours.

In the article, Daily Stormer founder and editor Andrew Anglin called victim Heather Heyer a "fat, childless 32-year-old slut." Sunday's article was widely condemned on social media and the link received more than 156,000 shares on Facebook alone.

"Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness," Anglin wrote. "A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value. .. Childless women are black hole vortexes of public money and energy."

With no evidence, Anglin also condemned Heyer as a "child murderer," saying her age suggested that she likely underwent multiple abortions. He further attacked her weight and, without evidence, claimed that Heyer sought the "complete abolition of the white race."

"Whatever you think of the driver, it is clear that his actions saved us a lot of money," Anglin said, referring to murder suspect James Fields. "It appears that road rage got the best of him," he added, calling Fields a "hardcore player."

Hours after GoDaddy's announcement, an article appeared on The Daily Stormer that claimed the website had been hacked. It was not possible to confirm the claim. The website was moved to Google on late Monday morning, but Google said it too would ban the neo-Nazi website.

The Daily Stormer website was launched in 2013 and is roughly estimated to rank as the 4,483rd most-visited website in the United States, according to Alexa.com, which analyzes internet traffic. It ranks as the 12,711th most-visited website worldwide.
