Google canceled the domain registration for a white supremacist neo-Nazi website Monday.

The move comes less than 24 hours after GoDaddy, the popular domain registrar company, threatened to remove The Daily Stormer if it did not find a new domain. The operators of the website subsequently moved their official web address to Google’s platform. Google then promptly shut down the anti-Semitic website.

“We are cancelling Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service,” a representative for Google told The Daily Caller News Foundation. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: White Supremacists Brutally Attack Black Teen Next To Charlottesville Police HQ)

While GoDaddy has been criticized before for The Daily Stormer’s patronage, the tipping point for the web hosting company seemed to come when the hateful site ran a denigrating headline on the woman killed Saturday by a sports car in Charlottesville, Virginia.
