Domain Hacked?

Hi guys,

My domain www.volutednews.com has been vacant for a while. I had no site built there yet, but just discovered someone has a site on it selling skin care products.  
Have I been hacked? 

What do I do?

Hi @indielabs,

are you sure your domain didn't expire and was simply bought by someone? The whois data seems to be real enough.

You should get in touch with support if you suspect wrong doing and they through validating your account and purchase history / product history etc will help you.

You will need to validate your account details, username, password, PIN number, email etc. Smiley Happy

Good luck!

Hi @indielabs,

Wordpress sites are very easy to hack often and it looks like they probably take money for products and run without supplying products, leaving you looking the guilty party. I would contact support for advice on this right away. I unfortunately don't know enough about CMS sites, so further advice is recommended.

 

Please sort out asp, best regards.

Thanks
