The Future of Free Expression

An article from EFF.org explained in full details about The Future of Free Expression.

“Protecting free speech is not something we do because we agree with all of the speech that gets protected. We do it because we believe that no one—not the government and not private commercial enterprises—should decide who gets to speak and who doesn’t.

Earlier this week, following complaints about a vitriolic and abusive Daily Stormer (now in the dark web) article on Heather Heyer—the woman killed when a white nationalist drove a car into a crowd of anti-racism demonstrators—GoDaddy told the site’s owners that they had 24 hours to leave their service. Daily Stormer subsequently moved their domain to Google’s domain management service. Within hours Google announced that it too was refusing Daily Stormer as a customer. Google also placed the dailystormer.com domain on “Client Hold”, which means that Daily Stormer’s owner cannot activate, use or move the domain to another service. It’s unclear whether this is for a limited amount of time, or whether Google has decided to effectively take ownership of the dailystormer.com domain permanently. Cloudflare, whose service was used to protect the site from denial-of-service attacks, subsequently dropped them as a customer. ” EFF.org

In this article GoDaddy and Google as registrar, providing domain name registration services. And CloudFlare providing protection against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDOS).

Just in case you’re wondering if you have alternative other than these services. NeedName.com is a good alternative for managing your domain name registration services and BitMitigate.com for DDOS protection services a perfect option for CloudFlare.com service.

After reading EFF.org article you might need to review who you use for domain name registration and DDOS protection services.

Have a nice day and freedom of speech to all.
