    Telling your hosting providers may be best

    @majon

    To report malicious domains, use a WhoIs tool (most hosting companies have one) to lookup who the Registrar and hosting (DNS) company is for that domain, and report the abuse to them. They should be able to shut down the domain.

    You can also block the domain by modifying your .htaccess file, but BE SURE you understand what you’re doing and keep a backup before making any changes – you can disable your site by making mistakes in your .htaccess file. Google “deny from domain using htaccess” for information on how to do this.

    Thank you both for your responses and I’m leaning towards TrishaM’s suggestion while letting my hoster know about it too. Closing the thread.
