Default Urgent Help

Computers are not my best subject,
I started a forum and someone has been able to reroute my url to there site.
Now other people that give out our url have no problems.
So has to do with my IP I think can someone help.
Everytime I give url out it takes it to my competitors site.
Thi8s is a dirty deal

Hi,

Are you hosting the forum yourself on a computer that you own, or is is hosted by another company? Also, if it is hosted by you at your home, can you tell us what type of server it is on and what security you have in place on the server. If it is hosted by a company can you tell us the name of the company?

Cheers!

Hi,

What I would do is contact their support and tell them what has happened. From their I am sure that their support people will take a look at it and see if they have had an intrution or an attack. Start their and see what happens. If that doesn't work then we can think of some other options.

Cheers!
