It is difficult.  If it can be seen in a browser, it can be copied.  All of the HTML content including javascript and images can be easily copied by programs like 'wget' and 'HTTrack.  Active scripting with PHP or ASP can't be easily copied unless someone has FTP access.  Same with databases.
Both above suggestions are quite correct.
Basically what can be seen, can be copied.
For now, the fastest way may be asking the ISP/host provider of to take it down, if you can easily prove what you have is unique and yours. The provider probably doesn't want theft of intellectual property attached to their good name. If the provider will really take action, of course, depends on their own policies and if they have any integrity. If it's not a provider (but they have their own data connection and host it on their own servers), it's a bit harder.
