    I am in a niche business and a competitor copied my website... I'm looking for a way to destroy his rank or get him kicked off his web host. I can overload it with traffic to shut it down, however that's not a long term solution.

    Do you know something that I don't?

    Email him and ask him to take it down? Why stoop to his level and go the douchebag route?

    I have, he's unresponsive to cease and desist letters also. If I go with a lawsuit it'll cost a fortune and take years.

    File a DCMA complaint with his hosting.

    I'd go with Techxan's suggestion. Filing a DCMA complaint is one of the best things for you to consider with the type of situation that you are in. I have met BHW members who have had the same experience and filing a DCMA complaint has always been the thing that's working for them. Give it a try.
