Someone is stealing my entire site

Hi Everyone,

I recently started using Ghost and love it.

I run an erotica publication on and just noticed that my entire site is being copied and stolen by someone on this domain

I have contacted namecheap and sent a complaint to Google’s copyright removal tool. I am still waiting to hear back. I am from canada and from what I can tell the thief is from Panama.

I don’t understand how this is happening. I haven’t told many people that I have been running this site at all. Also, I don’t understand how the hacker has scraped the entire site including all branding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


The thief pointed CNAME Record to your domain… the best & quick solution for this is move your domain to cloudflare. Once cloudflare propagation is done the thief cant show your contents on his domain

Thanks. Just made an account and set the nameservers to Cloudflare. Still waiting for it to be activated.

I’ve successfully moved the site to Cloudflare.

I made a test post to see if it would still show up on and it still seems to show up. When I deleted it, it was deleted as well.

What can I do about this?

I was able to finally solve it. If this happens to someone else, here’s what worked.

I had to take a snapshot of the current droplet at Digitalocean, recreate the snapshot in a new droplet, and set the new IP address in the Cloudflare console. Then finally, destroy the old droplet.


This problem reminded me about nice way to “punish” the thief - Scott Hanselman blogged about it years back.

You could play around your nginx/apache config to detect traffic coming form thief’s domain through Referer header. Then you can serve thief’s clients with a custom html page with whatever content you see fit.

Good luck!
