The inflammatory website of a violent terrorist group responsible for killing hundreds of US and coalition soldiers in Iraq is currently being hosted by one of America's biggest web companies, nine.com.au can exclusively reveal.

Kataib Hezbollah (KH), an Iranian-sponsored militia which targeted America soldiers and its allies, including the Australian Defence Force, during the insurgency in Iraq, was designated a Foreign Terrorist Group in 2009 by the US government.

But despite KH, also known as Hezbollah Brigades, being on the sanctions blacklist, which is meant to make international commerce more difficult, US internet goliath GoDaddy continues to host the anti-American terrorist group's official website

Counter Extremism Project (CEP), a Washington DC-based think tank which monitors terrorist and extremist groups, told nine.com.au that since 2016 it has repeatedly urged GoDaddy to shut down KH's online presence, without success.

The KH website, which boasts it will "cut off the hand of America", has a trove of hundreds of videos on a "jihadi operations" page, purportedly showing mortar and rocket attacks on US bases, massive IED explosions in Iraqi cities and towns and other combat footage. In June 2011, five US soldiers were killed in Baghdad when KH militia fired multiple rockets into the Camp Victory military base. 
A video on the KH website matches the date of the Camp Victory attack.
US military commanders are known to hold KH and Asaib Ahl al-Haq, another Shi’ite militia, responsible for IED attacks which killed as many as 500 US troops during the Iraq war.

Despite flagging concerns to the Nasdaq-listed GoDaddy seven times since October 2016, the internet giant has allowed the KH website to carry on propagandising and threatening the US and its allies, CEP has claimed."There is a very clear case to shut Kataib Hezbollah down," Daniel Roth, a CEP researcher who unearthed the group's commercial link with GoDaddy,said.

When approached by nine.com.au, GoDaddy spokesperson Dan Race acknowledged the KH website breached the company's terms of service, which prohibits customers using its online services to promote or encourage terrorism.

"Although we do not comment on specific complaints we receive, we can confirm that we followed established procedures and forwarded this site to federal law enforcement to investigate and determine the most appropriate course of action. GoDaddy will continue to work with law enforcement on this matter," Mr Race added.

US-based sources familiar with the matter told nine.com.au that often law enforcement, such as the FBI and Joint Task Terrorism Force, will require internet registrars to leave websites up in order to gain information about terrorist organisations. Counter-terror agencies will, where possible, track IP addresses of people who visit the site.

But Mr Roth said he was sceptical of GoDaddy's "boilerplate-type" response, blasting it as "pathetic and unsatisfactory".
"It is possible there is intelligence gathering. But it is unclear whether or not GoDaddy is actually working with law enforcement and intelligence agencies."

KH was founded in 2006 by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the alleged mastermind behind the 1983 truck and car bombings of the US and French embassies in Kuwait.
Muhandis and KH were designated as terrorists by the US Treasury soon after then president Barack Obama took office in 2009.

KH was set up to carry out operations against the US and Coalition Forces in Iraq. It is still active, fighting in Syria in support of the Assad regime, and has fought against Islamic State in Iraq.
