Question Laptop-Manuals.com?

Came across this site on Google and it seems to be a mirror of this site or something?

http://www.laptop-manuals.com/index.php

I don't think they're looking to copy this site. Maybe as a placeholder, until they can setup a page of their own. Who knows.

WhoisGuard is a service to protect the actually registrants address. Since CF is the main site hosted on daivds server, my guess is that he has had the domain point to his server, but not yet set it up in IIS - So laptop-manuals will point to the Main Site, ComputerForums

Even if the domain was pointing to your server you server would have to be ready to allow access from that domain, for anything to show up

Couldnt you just plonk something like

PHP Code:
if($_server['HTTP_HOST'] != "computerforums.org" || $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] != "www.computerforums.org"){
echo 
"GTFO PLZ";
kill();

on top of your index.php file

Yes.. But it would be a better thing to put:
Code:
header('Location: http://www.computerforums.org');
Instead of the "GTFO PLZ".

I would insert a message saying "The owner of the above domain is leeching of us. Please visit computerforums.org for the true experience" or something like that.
