So I was doing some random checking in my referrers on a site of mine and say an odd link that was coming from 20xj.com when I went to I find a clone of my network sites. Even the new banner I just put up on the site.
I use the site as a proxy and it loads the page with the same url as there site but its using my proxified page on there domain name if that makes sense it has all my code and advertisers. The main site has my adsense and exact code down to the footer links.
How the hell is he doing this? It is not my domain a who is shows a Liu hu owns it.
Rather freaky he is using a scraped site or ? dont know how as the script requires a license and I know that site doesnt have one so some how he is echoing my site. He is giving me free backlinks and possibly more income since its my ads on it.
How is able to echo the php code? I can actually edit his site content via my title.php file which a include line is added on all my sites for quick editing of one file and it can actually change the content on a site I dont own.
Checking the ip on the site given is the same ip for schoolisterrible.info these are dedicated ips and my site is the only one on it WHM

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
What does Liu Hu gain by doing this to you? He cant earn revenue because its your adsense code as you said. I had a similar case but not like you though. I bought a domain at godaddy called schoolhack.info and eventhough i have it configured to point to my server dns, it still redirects to someone elses proxy network and i have tried everything so i can start using the domain but still points to someone elses proxy.
Some people will argue that. I am not sure if you can still do this, but I personally did it to take over a site hosted on an ISP and move the serps to point to a new domain name for the site. It worked. Then I had a competitor try to do it to the same site. He didn't own it and I did - what a jerk. He also FAILED.
I can't get a fix on his sites IP as its reflecting my own IP. I only managed a meta refresh via my server and it redirects the people going to his site to centurian's random proxy page. I really shouldnt care as he is getting traffic and its my ads so he is earning me money. My concern is I want to find out how he is creating a full mirror of my site. Then I dont know if its using my bandwidth or not.
But what weird is he didnt rip the site. He is actually echoing the site. Like its on my server. I can edit the config file for the site he is echoing and I can change his content.
Gave up on it since I have geoip setup and he is using my ads and I redirecting the traffic from it to centurian cant see any real harm it right now. Just wish I knew how he did it to prevent any future issues. Paid a tech someone FDC passed on to me $85 dollars for one hour and he couldnt figure it out.
