another unknown domain has a record pointing to my domain
Posted on 2011-10-31
If I do a reverse DNS lookup on my domain's public IP address, I see an unknown domain in the list of websites that use this IP address.
This unknown domain does not belong to me but to a jeefang cheng in Fuzhou City China, who also owns 960 other domains.
I know it's not illegal, but WHAT EXACTLY can jeefang chen gain from this?
- boosting the ranking of the other domain?
- some kind of impersonation that depends on reverse DNS
- spamming by spoofing my e-mail addresses?
- stealing passwords that are used ot access my domain?
I can't quite see how any of these might work... All ideas and clarification welcome
