stolen web site

This is a new one on me. I hope someone has some insight about how I can resolve it. My site at url www.onebagonelife.com is appearing on this URL - http://hellokitty-jewelry.com/
They have no relation to my client.
It is exact. It would take a lot of work to do that and for what reason we don’t understand. Is it an internet anomaly? I’m not sure even where to start to get rid of it.

Looking at a Whois for the hello kitty domain, it’s been registered by GoDaddy.

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/hellokitty-jewelry.com

The registrant is in China. I guess GoDaddy! would be your first port of call.

Looking at these reports both sites share the same IP address and virtual host so it could be as simple as a basic DNS error. As Paul says, check with GoDaddy.

Tim.

Thanks, guys. GoDaddy says we have to get legal counsel to prove our copy right, etc. Wow.

Personally I’m not convinced that the site was stolen. If it was then it would seem a very big coincidence to store the stolen site on the same GoDaddy server as th original. Make a simple change to your site (add an HTML comment to a page or a simple colour change) and see if both domains update instantly. If they do then it would almost certainly point to a DNS issue which GoDaddy should be able to resolve for you without legal intervention.
Regards,
Tim.

Wonderful suggestion. Much appreciated.

For anyone interested-my hosting company responded-The owner of hellokitty-jewelry.com domain has pointed it to IP address of your website, this can be easily done by custom DNS A record.
According to WHOIS info at http://who.is/hellokitty-jewelry.com/ , this domain is hosted with GoDaddy, I would recommend to contact them and ask to remove this custom A record.

I have also created .htaccess file within your domain folder and added the following code to it:
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.onebagonelife.com $
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) http://www.onebagonelife.com /$1 [QSA,R=301,L]
As a result, all requests to IP address of your website will be redirected to onebagonelife.com, i.e. if one tries to access http://hellokitty-jewelry.com/ he will be redirected to www.onebagonelife.com.

We confirmed the DNS A is the culprit when we changed a price and it instantly appeared on their site. Now lets see how long GoDaddy takes to correct it.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi,

This is rather off topic but I’ve a client who had some ‘free’ (not) business cards made by Vistaprint before she registered her domain name. They, automatically or not registered ‘her’ domain name themselves. She’s since contacted Vistaprint and has had to purchase the domain name through them. They didn’t charge a lot but still a very sneaky and underhand thing for them to do imho.

This (not Vistaprint, but a “check your domain tool”) is why I still don’t own walterdavis.com. Last I checked, it would be hundreds of dollars, just because I used a web form to see if my domain was available back in 1997.

When I was getting ready to register a domain, instead of using
anyone’s “helpful” domain search tool, I tried typing the domain into
my browser to see if it was already in use. Nothing came up, so I
registered it.

Glad you bought it right away. When I was considering a name for my business, I tried .com and it was available. Didn’t go back to purchase for 2 weeks and it was gone. 3 years ago and they renewed last year and I still can’t get it. Owners won’t even respond to me. But you can see I do have several of the others - but I really want .com since it’s so common!

Luckily I didn’t have to chase Vistaprint but will have to see how easy or not they make it for me to redirect the nameservers.

Since http://inspiredimpact.com is now a parked domain name, it would
seem they are holding it for resale. So, it is interesting they won’t
respond to your inquires.

LLE

P.S. I have used GoDaddy to search for unused domain names and have
gone back later and I found they were not taken yet. So I conclude
GoDaddy is not playing that game of snagging inquires for themselves
for later resale. YMMV

This is all very interesting chat about registering domain names after searching. I have one that is due and was thinking of letting it go, but then did a search one of the domain registrants and found that domains with different suffixes to my .com one are registered, so I think I will renew it now!

I trust GoDaddy - I actually tried the name I wanted in the url field of the browser. Later I read that that’s a bad idea! I definitely learned from experience on that one! I think it’s odd, too, that the owner hasn’t responded to my inquiries.

Since we’re on the subject of domains - I obviously decided to go with .biz although I also have .net and .org. I work with a lot of school districts and sometimes (I think a lot of times), my emails are blocked and I think it might be because of the .biz on the end. I just bought .me. I’ve used .biz for 3 years and my business is building up. Should I try to switch to using a different one? .biz made sense to me at the beginning because it’s my business, but I don’t like worrying that my emails may not be going through.

Thanks for bringing this up Tammy,

It’s been an interesting few hours since reading the first link on this topic. I have since renewed the name that was about to expire and then bought the .info version too as I saw that others had registered the name with other suffixes. So thank you! This is also a website for school education, but different to my main site schooldaysmagazine.com

kind regards

If I recall correctly, the first time I registered classeads.com was for free with Go Daddy, years ago. Guess who owns it now. They would sell for about 4 G last I checked.

Hmmm, take a look at how much real estate they invest in promoting the ‘internet realestate’ biz. They are as Vegas as the name might imply…
