Stormfront seized by domain hosts
Stormfront, an international supremacist web forum, appears to have been seized by its website host, Network Solutions, LLC.
The forum disappeared Friday. WhoIs, a web service that tracks site ownership, reported the Stormfront domain’s status as “under hold.”
According to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit that coordinates name spaces on the Internet, a hold status is an uncommon status that indicates a site is under legal dispute or about to be deleted.
Network Solutions has also prohibited Stormfront from updating, transferring or deleting its web forum on its own. That means Stormfront’s web masters cannot re-introduce the site on another domain.
