Weird problem: my website keeps appearing in different hostnames?
I have really a weird problem.
I setup a website last month and everything was OK. It is running perfectly. One day when i was checking my google adsense reports i saw that im earning money from a strange hostname. (www.?????.com something like this. I dont want to disclose hostname) When i open that website, it was exact clone of my website. And it was ranking higher than my original website.
I tried to contact the owner of that domain to tell them to stop cloning/mirroring my website but seems like they also dont have any clue.
Things got stranger when i ping that host. It was exact same ip with my droplet? So how is this possible? When i shutdown my droplet that website also goes down:
I didnt understand whats happening. So what i did is, i create a new droplet with new ip and shutdown the previous one. So now my problem was resolved. Because when i visit that domain it was longer available.
I am checking my analytic reports and now, this time, i am seeing 3 different domain is mirroring my website!!!
Even when i ping them, they all have same ip with my new droplet! How is this even possible?
Why exact copy of my droplet keep appearing?
Any idea please?
I am running my website on Ubuntu 16.04 machine.
