GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving has spoken to the media about DailyStormer and GoDaddy’s position with respect to domains and sites they provide services to.
While the interview focussed on the Daily Stormer, Blake Irving also spoke about GoDaddy’s approach to dealing with content. The company has a large team that are tasked with reviewing complaints and seeing whether or not the websites breach the company’s terms of service or not. What’s important to note, however, is that Irving does not see their role as one of “content police”.
