Parsed the entire site

Hello!
The whole website has been replicated with only a small change at the end of the domain name.
 
It seems that any new articles I post on my website are automatically appearing on the copied version and if I delete them, they disappear from the other site too. I'm not sure how this is happening and wondering if there's a way to prevent it or limit the link between the two sites.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

To prevent proxying (which is 100% effective), add the following code to the head of your webpage, replacing "website.com" with your own URL. The alert function (the first part of the code) can be removed, and the redirect will still happen automatically. In rare cases where the code is removed by someone else, you can encrypt it using JavaScript obfuscation techniques found on Google.

<script>
if((self.parent&&!(self.parent===self))&&(self.parent.frames.length!=0)){alert('Redirecting to original site')}
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
if(window top != window) {
window.location.href = 'https://website.com';
}
</script>

Wouldn't it be simpler to use Cloudflare instead? Banning one scraper today only means that another will pop up tomorrow, and an even more experienced one the day after that. Cloudflare has the ability to block basic scrapers and offers a user-friendly interface to keep track of enemies. It's true that the Pro plan costs $22 per month.

However, even Cloudflare isn't foolproof. Skilled hackers can bypass its protection by changing the bootloader, and they can set up an auto parser that checks the donor site every few seconds. The "Likely Automated" blocking feature works fairly well, but it's only available to Business users.

It's important to remember that no security measure is 100% effective, and determined attackers can always find ways around them. Nonetheless, using services like Cloudflare can significantly reduce the risk of scraping and other malicious activities.

Ensure that your website's rel=canonical attribute is correctly set to highlight the canonical pages.
For more information on how to do this, consult the Google Help Center.

In Google Search Console, report any web spam or phishing pages you come across.

Using WHOIS, find out which registrar is responsible for the fraudulent site and inform them of the situation.

In the site settings section of the Search Console, under the "Main domain" item, make sure to select "Display URLs as *your domain*" instead of the default "Do not install the main domain".

Contact the hosting company directly, providing details about the infringing website and attaching links to the images that were stolen from your site. Be sure to also provide proof of ownership and any relevant correspondence with the violator. If the hosting company agrees that your rights have been violated, they may suspend the violator's website.

Remember that taking action against copyright infringement and other online abuses can be time-consuming and frustrating. However, it's important to protect your intellectual property and ensure that your website content isn't being used without your permission.
