    I'm so excited 2 of my sites have been hijacked - now i know most of you wouldnt view it as a positive but the truth is i never did anything with them - i didnt know what or how, so just when i think i might be able to do something i find out they have been hijacked. Ironic or what?
    So i got the accounts blocked at domain registry and a security ticket at hostgator. I don't know what to do next but i am sure someone on here does.

    Anyway i am happy because some one out there thought 2 of my random unresearched site names were worthy of traffic and hacking - now that has to be good right?

    Funny i bought 4 micro-nichesites from sterday and even though one of the sites is on first page of google a random unlisted site i created actually gets more traffic, but then i guess no need to get excited about 13 page views right!;)

    ok so not so happy now.
    Hostgator have found a different IP address but no malicious stuff. hello but am i the only one who thinks its wrong that the site is listed in my public-html files and listed as having word press installed but not listed as an addon domain and not listed in the word press installation section and i dont have any word press admin login/access details and even if you type in domain name wp-admin no login comes up?
    jez i know nothing about this stuff but even i have worked out that if i dont have an admin password and the admin login dont come up that there is a problem:pat:

    no, hackers aren't picky about the qualities of the websites they hack, lol

    Sounds to me like left-over files from your developer. Check with whoever built you the site to see if those files look familiar.

    You should use different protection measures. This is pretty common nowadays. Google some of them.

    Instead of wp admin try wp-login.php to login to your wordpress
