View Full Version : Unwanted Redirection

11-12-2008, 10:43 PM
A few weeks back, my company bought a domain name from a private seller. The other day, someone tried to access the blank site and was redirected to a parked page that is not ours. There is nothing on our server that I can see that would cause it to redirect... nothing in the code of index.html, and no htaccess file. Nothing out of the ordinary whatsoever as far as I can tell...

Anyone ever encountered this? What's causing it, and how do I fix it?

so was it doing this before a few days ago or as it just happened?

Have you tried to updating the Name servers or check the DNS settings, it might be that this as still got the settings from the previous owner. If you try an update either ur name server or DNS this may take up to 48 hours to propagate through to the other servers on the net.

I hadn't actually checked the new domain until a few days ago, when the problem was pointed out to me. I'm gonna assume that it's been doing this for the entire time that we've owned it and had it hosted on our server (roughly two weeks now).
