    Files and DB in VPS hacked and stolen

    Someone stole my website source code files and databases and made exactly the same websites, only with a different domain name. Does anyone have the same problem? Couldn't find help from Godaddy tech supports.

    I've never seen someone do that - I've seen sites which have been compromised (WordPress) get redirected - but not that someone just copies the site to a new domain.

     

    I'm curious what is your domain and what is the copy of the site??

    Have you had this site for a while or is it a new site you are building out - and also just to confirm - this isn't a template which just happens to be deployed somewhere else with the same demo content??

    What happens if you add a new business or make an edit to a page - this other domain is using cloudflare and I wonder if they are doing some sort of masked forwarding.

     

    I would also check / update your database password - it seems very strange - I would also try to add a new page / content somewhere to see if that flows through
