Trouble rerouting site (6 posts)

    My blog http://www.damonarmani.info is experiencing routing problems. If you type the name into the search bar, it either looks glitchy or says the site doesn't exist.
When I first created the site I created it under damonarmani.info and used 1and1.com as the web host with the same domain name. Then I decided to create a new domain name with 1and1 called nutratimes.com and linked it to the same files the damonarmani.info site was using- that way if you typed in nutratimes.com into the address bar, you would come up with the same wordpress site as damonarmani.info. I recently decided I didn't need to be paying for both websites and that 1 would do, so I picked the nutratimes.com website and deleted damonarmani.info. Now I'm not sure how to relink all of the blog posts and fix this problem.

    Your first site (.info) shows some funny redirection codes and Chinese characters, while the second one nutratimes.com seems to be infected with malware: see report.

    Sorry, I did not visit the sites. Are they working? Do you have any backups?

    Edit: Your .info site is probably expired or offered for sale as per this report.

    Are you aware of these facts or not?

    The .info site I gave up and deleted. It's not really the one I'm concerned with, its the nutratimes.com site that I want. I deleted the .info site in 1and1 because I thought you could still type in nutratimes.com and the same site would come up since I linked them to the same information.
    I wasn't aware of the malware. I think I have the nutratimes.com backup with my 1and1 web host.

    If you have a backup or can get a backup, delete everything in your site, reinstall WordPress and restore your site. You may want to go through the steps in the link below, because you may still leave back doors for hacking and malware.

    Follow the instructions at:

    Ok thank you! What should I do if I cannot get a backup?

    You have to use a backup prior to the date of the infection. You may contact your host for a backup.
