Hey Guys,

So some one is pointing 4-5 domains to my ip and they are now messing with my ranking for some keywords instead of my original domain those domains are appearing.

What should be my approach?
Should I disavow those domains in WMT
or should I redirect other urls to my original domain via .htaccess?
Or anything else.

Looking forward to your response.

So they domains are pointing to your hosting IP? If you dont have accounts set up for those domains it shouldnt affect anything as they would be dead domains. Or do you mean they are forwarding to your domain?

P.S. if it truly is a hosting issue I would just request the host transfer you to another IP or transfer your site to new hosting

If you're on shared hosting, probably hundred over domains shared a same ip, if pointed to your domain, disavow them to be safe

Domains pointing to your IP address are not necessarily pointing to your domain unless you are on a dedicated ip address. If you are on a shared hosting you can't simply disvow every link pointing to that ip and get away with the evil.

Its actually hard to believe the domains are linking to your ip but if they are then most viable solution will be to switch to another hosting (preferably a dedicated ip address) .

I think you should elaborate on what exactly you mean by "pointing 4-5 domains to my ip". Websites linking to your IP? Domains pointing at your nameservers? Domains redirected to your website?

I am on Digital Ocean so I have a dedicated IP and I am sure those domains are not redirected to my domain since they dont appear in web master tools.
Yeah currently I am thinking to create a new droplet and switch to it and this should solve the issues.
