The founder of neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer has struggled recently to find a domain to host his site. Web hosting company GoDaddy removed the site after it published an article disparaging Heather Heyer, an anti-fascist campaigner who died after a man drove a car into a crowd of counter-protesters during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville earlier in August.
The Daily Stormer was then booted off Google for violating the web giants terms of service and retreated to the encrypted dark web after failing to secure a Russian domain.
Anglin announced on Wednesday via the social network Gab that the site had gone live again with the url h t t ps://dailystormer.al/. .al is the top-level domain for sites registered in Albania.
But Host.al, an Albanian domain registrar, confirmed to tech site ZDNet that the Daily Stormer had been blocked just hours later after the registrar received complaints.

Traffic to the sitebilled as the rights answer to the massive HuffPost when it was founded in 2015is miniscule, with an average of little more than 10,000 unique visitors per day in July, according to data from ComScore. LifeZette is also the target of a labor complaint aimed at its payroll practices from a former employee who says paychecks came sporadically and with little official documentation, according to documents provided to The Daily Beast.
Most seriously, according to seven sources currently and formerly employed by LifeZette, the organization has become a deeply uncomfortable place for women to work, with a top company official repeatedly making sexually suggestive comments about female employeessometimes within earshot of those female staffers.
Byron Martinez, LifeZettes former broadcast engineer and IT administrator, recalled Peter Anthony, the sites chief executive, talking about other womens boobs, butts how he would desire sexual activities with [female colleagues] and stuff like that All kinds of inappropriate talk about women in the office.

Edit to add:
President Donald Trump is promising billions to help Texas rebuild from Hurricane Harvey, but his Republican allies in the House are looking at cutting almost $1 billion from disaster accounts to help finance the presidents border wall.
The pending reduction to the Federal Emergency Management Agencys disaster relief account is part of a spending bill that the House is scheduled to consider next week when Congress returns from its August recess. The $876 million cut, part of the 1,305-page measures homeland security section, pays for roughly half the cost of Trumps down payment on a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
It seems sure that GOP leaders will move to reverse the disaster aid cut next week. The optics are politically bad and theres only $2.3 billion remaining in disaster coffers.
It is a real life horror story.

Closing the wage gap is something that Ivanka Trump, a business woman and unpaid assistant to the president (per WSJ), has championed in several compelling advertisements for her public personaat least when it comes to gender, the only kind of wage disparity that could possibly impact her in any way. Based on the shallowness of Ivankas commitment, it comes as no surprise that Ivanka threw her influence behind the White Houses decision, saying in a statement:
Ultimately, while I believe the intention was good and agree that pay transparency is important, the proposed policy would not yield the intended results. We look forward to continuing to work with EEOC, OMB, Congress and all relevant stakeholders on robust policies aimed at eliminating the gender wage gap.
I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you!
