Hosting company shuts down Koran burning websiteBy Tom Manners 10 September 2010 | Categories: news
The hosting company for Florida based Dove World Outreach Center. the spiritual home of firebrand Pastor Terry Jones, who this week made headlines for announcing that he and his congregation will burn Muslim holy texts to commemorate the September 11th attacks, has officially pulled the group’s website.
Popular hosting company Rackspace Hosting today revealed that two websites operated by the church were shut down by the company due to a contravention of its legal terms and agreements which apply to users.
According to Dan Goodgame, a spokesman for Rackspace Hosting, the church violated hate speech provisions in its contract with the company.
"What we did was to terminate them as a Rackspace customer because they had violated the contract," Goodgame said.
Reuters reports that Jones, 58, believes he has a right to burn the Koran because "it's full of lies".
Rackspace was reportedly unaware that the church was one of its customers until it received complaints and decided to take a closer look.
