Hi all,
On November 21, I checked transparencyreport.google.com and saw a number of DMCA reports to my website (a streaming video site). Since that day, Google has stopped crawling my website.
The previous links are still on google, but the videos I posted from the 21st are not crawled.
Have you ever encountered this situation? How to handle this? Do I need to change my domain?
Thanks all!

6 days is not that much, wait at least 14 days before thinking about changing the domain.

I would suggest you to remove those videos as it looks like copyright issue and make sure everything else on your site follows the rules. That might help Google start checking your site again.
 
This can be caused for many reasons,

1st one is it just 6 days have passed since you submitted your videos, you must need to wait a few more days to get them indexed...

Secondly, these videos might not be indexed due to the copyright issue of the video, make sure that the video is original contianing no duplicate content....
 
It happend the same to one of my sites...i changed 3 hostings companies in one month and site still isnt indexing anymore.
 
My opinion on this would be, Deal with DMCA problems quickly, follow the rules, and think about talking to a legal expert; switching to a new domain could be a way to start fresh.

Thanks for your reply. But on Google Search Console I don't see any notification about which urls are reported as DMCA.
How can I check those URLs?

You might need to use special tools from Google or other services that handle copyright reports to find out which specific URLs are reported for DMCA on your site.

Before the 21st, almost every time I post a video, it will be indexed immediately. That's why I feel worried

It may be due to the Google is rolling its core update, you should wait for some more days to get it indexed...
 
This is a common issue for sites with content that could infringe on copyright. First, review the content on your site and remove anything that could be potentially violating copyrights. Then, submit a reconsideration request to Google explaining the steps you've taken to rectify the issue. Changing your domain might not solve the problem if the underlying issue is with the content. Focus on ensuring your site complies with copyright laws to avoid further issues.
 
After removing the videos, you could try indexing manually from search console. if you have particular page issue. By the way, Have you tried instant indexing api?
I tried submitting manually from the search console, but the url is always reported as Page is not indexed: URL is unknown to Google
 
If you using DMCA Ignored hosting how they make report? Also you using DMCA protect domain too. Just simply wait for 14 day's. If not just switch to new domain.

I think they report to Google, not the hosting server
 
If the DMCA notices are valid, consider removing the copyrighted content from your website. This may involve taking down specific videos or implementing measures to prevent copyright infringement.
 
It seems I was too worried, Google has now crawled the web again
