I just checked. It seems to be an SSL certificate error. The site is not actually down, your browser is probably just preventing you from viewing it.

I get the following message:
Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.stormfront.org (for example, passwords, messages or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_REVOKED


How did this happen? And how is this fixed?

Check to the left of your address bar right now, there should be a shield or a lock symbol and you click/hover it says "Connection is secure" - this is from the SSL certificate. A website has either "http://" or "https://" before it and the 2nd is the secure version with authentication. The Stormfront website is forcing you to view it in https mode, but that's giving the error here (or, rather, causing your browser to prevent you form using it).

Probably the SSL certificate they used has an expiration date which has passed. I bet if you change your computer's date back a month or 2 it will work.

Or you can disable the check for that with your browser. Your web browser is what's preventing you from using the website, it has blocked you from accessing presumably for your safety. You can just google that "ERR_CERT_REVOKED" and your web browser name and people explain how to get around it by disabling features. You could just download a different web browser (like opera portable) and then use that, so you don't have to modify your regular browser.
See a guide for Opera on how to disable that: https://forums.opera.com/topic/11336/ho ... cate-error
