    So I'm using hostwind and majestic just picked up that there's a random URL with literally my whole site copied word by word. Basically as if it was redirecting to my URL but it isn't because the URL isn't the same, can it perhaps hurt my ranking due to duplicate content? Majestic detects it as indexed as well.


    Url is like:
    http://cvpsRANDOMNUMBER.hostwindsdns.com/


    EDIT: Not copying the internal pages, only the homepage since the categories and such redirect to my site.

    this is the normal preview url. in case you just set a dns and can not preview your site without propagation. you can ask them to delete it though

    This can easily be removed for you, just put in a ticket asking for us to delete the DNS record
