20-30 domains which open up my site.

Why are they pointing to my site, They are basically having all my content visible on their domain name, even the search engines are crawling their pages which leads to duplication of content.

I could very well post a DMCA, but that's not something I'm looking for.

I only sampled one to confirm my suspicion, but 104 is typically Cloudflare.

My theory is these other domains used to be on your IP address, but they haven't removed them from Cloudflare.

The server you're on defaults to the first domain listed. Congratulations on having a (sub)domain that begins with an A. So non-existent domains get content from the first domain on the list.

You need to configure your web server to not serve a default domain.

  • Hi sdayman,

    Thanks a lot for you response. How could I do that?

    I'm not a very techsavvy person. I just created a new droplet and changed the A record to that droplet.
