    Help! Website Copier!

    I was going through my external links tonight and saw a link to http://www.websitecopier.tk and clicked on it. Long behold it went to my site DirectSpace Hosting!! I'm not sure what is going on here but im pretty worried. As you go to our order form it still stays within their domain which makes me think that they can get some type of information from my accounts. I tried to block their IP Address and domain but everytime you go to the URL it has a different IP Address. If anyone knows how I can nail these guys or get rid of this, please let me know!

    Thanks in advanced!

    You could do something like this in your htaccess :

    RewriteEngine on
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} websitecopier\.tk
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    That should block referrals from this particular link.

    What about for multiple domains?

    Since there is a 15m limit on editing, I had to add another reply. So in regards to my last post, is there also a way to have the denied site fowarded to a page?

    RewriteEngine on
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} websitecopier\.tkv [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} anothersite\.com
    RewriteRule .* http://www.example.com/redirect.html

    That should let you do two sites, and forward them to a certain page.

    I tried this and it blocks every site including the ones listed with error 403 which is not good. Other suggestions?
