    I've had this happen twice, on two separate shared hosting accounts with a dedicated IP. It happens right after I put content up, and these sites are getting crawled more, meaning G indexes their copied content first.

    Is this a new method? Has it happened to you? They're doing it with info and co.cc domains, probably on a large scale.

    how to point to your ip? you can't have 2 domains pointing to the same ip, just 301 redirects.

    They weren't just redirecting to my domain, the problem goes away right when I switch to a shared IP.

    Now their sites give this message, after I move away from a dedi IP

    The first time this happened, my site was deindexed. Hopefully I caught it early enough this time.

    Yes, a few of my domains that were on dedicated IPs got hit by this tatic. One of the domain got deindexed, luckily, this and all of the other domains have no content as I didn't have time to built. Now, I'm setting up a redirect 301 IP-to-domain through htaccess, hopefully that will solve the problem - If not, then I have to move all of them to the shared IP like you did. This is getting really annoying. :/

    My web host figured out a way to block these sites and keep it on a dedi IP. I asked them to explain how they did it, and support had to refer it back to a higher level tech. I suspect it's the htaccess redirect.

    It works though, I''ll post when I get a response.

    Deviatus,I'm curious how your hosting did it too. Unfortunately, there is no resolution on my hosting provider.This is the response I got from my NOC support."because IP addresses are on plain view, anyone can point his domain to any address he likes. The best option would be to contact the owner (the website that pointing to your IP) directly for assistance."So, I've left with the only option redirect IP-to-domain through htaccess.

    freaking brilliant technique
    it's a ip change at the domain level that allowed them to do it.

    I wonder if it works on Cpanel? Since my hosting support previously said they cannot solve the problem. Nevertheless, my simple redirecting IP-to-domain in the htaccess file seems working after about a week. My deindexed domain is back and the other domain got deindexed instead.
