Heyer, of course, was the woman who was killed during the Charlottesville, Virginia, "Unite the Right" rally after she was struck down by a madman behind the wheel of a auto.

Update 1:40 p.m. August 14: Neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer on Monday moved its domain registration to Google after it was booted from web hosting company GoDaddy due to a provocative post about a deadly confrontation over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, Reuters reported. Who would have thought.

Anonymous hackers appear to have taken over one of the web's most notorious neo-Nazi websites, the Daily Stormer, with the site now displaying a post saying, 'End of hate: Anonymous now in control of Daily Stormer'.

The site also appeared to have been hacked by the Anonymous collective - but it is thought the "takeover" may have been a fake possibly staged by the site's owner. It was also criticised for an article that attacked Heather Heyer, the woman who died after a auto ran into counter-protestors who were opposing the white supremacist protest.

Ami Siskind, a women's rights advocate, called the attention of GoDaddy via Twitter to check the Daily Stormer's post.

The Daily Stormer, probably the world's most notorious Nazi website, is now offline.

However, some experts have cast doubt over whether the site has been hacked by an established member of Anonymous, with others claiming it was a stunt by the Daily Stormer itself. We have reached out to the Daily Stormer and will update this post if we hear back. The article on Daily Stormer is causing a widespread reaction among the entire technology community in the United States, and making people discuss the broader topic of hate speech being disseminated online. When they remove Anglin's account, the domain will then have to seek another internet provider willing to host it.
