GoDaddy Is Giving Texas Abortion Snitching Site the Boot - 2021-09-03
After users threatened to boycott the internet domain service GoDaddy for hosting the newly-established tip line that allows Texans to anonymously snitch on private citizens they suspect of performing an abortion after six weeks or anyone who " aids or abets" such abortions in the state , the company abruptly announced t hat it is booting the site from its servers over terms of service violations.
"We have informed prolifewhistleblower.com they have 24 hours to move to another provider for violating our terms of service," Dan C. Race, a GoDaddy spokesman, told Gizmodo in an email. The company first informed the New York Times of the 24-hour window to find another hosting provider "late Thursday," meaning it likely has just hours to do so or, presumably, it will go offline.
At the time of publication, the site's "anonymous tip" page appeared to be either offline or severely busted. Multiple a ttempts to access the tip line led Gizmodo to a page declaring "access denied." Other parts of the site remained accessible, however.
