    Exclamation WTF is this?

    Searching my domain through Google today and I came upon a listing with all my site details but with an addition to my domain as follows:hxxp://mysite.com.anothersite.com. It's an exact copy of my site.

    Has the owner of hxxp://anothersite.com cloned my site some how?. They are not using iframes either.

    Has my site been hacked? I've scanned my site the premium edition of Wordfence and no problem were detected.

    Has anybody had a similar experience? Would really appreciate some feedback.

    Blocking the other sites ip address (based in the US) now brings up a Forbidden message when visiting hxxp://mysite.com.anothersite.com.

    Could you tell us the name of the domain doing this?

    They were likely mirroring the site with frames and letting us know who is doing it would allow others to perform the same blocking.

    Was it an seo wannabe site, or was it an unethical affiliate?

    It's a porn directory site: hxxp://alsohe.com/.

    Looks like a lot of respected gpwa member sites are there....

    Do a google search using the site: operator and then your site name.

    Example:
    site:alsohe.com casinocity (or any other site name or keyword)
    site:alsohe.com gambling

    For those who want to block by ip, their ip is 162.243.150.115

    Daftdog can you verify that was the ip you blocked that took care of the issue?

    I do not see standard iframe code so not sure if this is framed or is pulling out of their database

    Interesting that they also mirrored at least a portion of the microsoft.com website, I wonder how Bill would feel about that.

    Thanks for picking up the others sites that are attached. I'm no expert when it comes to this type of thing.

    Blocking that ip address brings up a forbidden page when I visit hxxp://mysite.com.alsohe.com.

    edit: Yes that is the same ip I have blocked.

    I do not know the full effect of this at this point, but I am considering blocking the ip globally so that no server on my rack could be affected by this.

    Darn it looks like he didn't do the nfl, cbs or nbc, although he did do imdb.

    He did do amazon though so that was only 74 million plus results...
