Is it your server or hosted?
as @pAceMakerNZ mentioned if your server is hosted it is likely that multiple hosts are being hosted on the same machine with different names. If this is you machine then you got your machine compromised ...most propably

How did you found that?

Really that's not a problem at all. I as a domain name owner, can assign any IP address (including your server's IP) to any of my domains.
And there is no way to fix it unless the domain name owner will fix DNS records.
If you tell me your IP address I can demonstrate how it works :-)

Hi all,

 the server is dedicated server that I rented it. I found this issue on my error log, because I set a password to access this ip and I got lots of 401 request in the log when people trying to access that domain.

"Nopius: And there is no way to fix it unless the domain name owner will fix DNS records."

Nopius: can you please teach me how to fix it?

This is my DNS record setting (sample ip and domain name):

*.domain.com.               CNAME    domain.com.
12.123.12.123 / 24       PTR          domain.com.
ftp.domain.com.            CNAME    domain.com.
mail.domain.com.          A              12.123.12.123
ns1.domain.com.          A              12.123.12.123
ns2.domain.com.          A              12.123.12.122
domain.com.                 NS            ns1.domain.com.
domain.com.                 NS            ns2.domain.com.
domain.com.                 A              12.123.12.123
domain.com.                 MX (10)    mail.domain.com.

That's not your DNS problem (if the requested domain is not your own).

Thank you Nopius.
simoa, really that's not your problem, but the problem of that 'bad' domain admins. You may take all benefits having IP, that is pointed by another domain, that has some traffic.

You need only rewrite or redirect all such users to your current site (with permanent redirect to your real domain), and you don't need to take care of advertising your new domain...

I guess you grasp an idea.
