Toronto: Canada's conservative Rebel Media said a technology company stopped directing traffic to its website, making it inaccessible to some users around the world on Monday as the site known for tirades against Muslims and refugees scrambled to get back online.

Last week GoDaddy Inc, Alphabet Inc's Google and other technology companies pushed the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer offline by terminating services to the online publication, which helped organise a white nationalist rally that turned violent in Virginia on August 12.

Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant said he was given 24 hours' notice and no explanation for the action. He did not identify the technology company.
