So i have this very small website and another domain is basically mirroring my whole site, i have tried to block the other site with UFW but with no luck so far, can i block that other domain with apache? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

What I would do in such case is:

  • I would create a separate virtual host for my website
  • Then I would modify the default virtual host it returns a default page

That way even if a domain name is pointed to your server, it would not show the content of your website but it would just show the content of the default virtual host.

Hope that this helps!
