    Hello Hubers,
    I stumbled upon these pages that have my domain name on them. Just check them out and tell me what this is all about:

    Have you ever experienced something like this? And what do they gain by this?

      Those two sites make no sense- they are useless. Of cause they don't add any value to your HP account by displaying your name on their site with no links to your hubs or profile.. I also believe there is no harm since they have not stolen your content, but watchout coz that could be the next thing.. They are just among the top crappy sites on the internet you should not worry about; however, decide if your name should remain there or not...

        Should it be that these guys have a hidden agenda, what could I do at this point to prevent any damage to my sub-domain?

          The sites are irrelevant to your contents; especially about maxi wear.. It is hard to know what they're after or how they're gaining by doing that. The best thing to do is to find their contact or their host's contact (thro whois) and command them to stop whatever is it they are doing/after before you take any legal action

      There is no specific protection for your username unless you have taken the steps to copyright/trademark/etc it.

      If someone has copied your original copyrighted content without your permission, then a DMCA NOI may be appropriate.

        Thanks Matthew,
        I'm sure you know these things and I won't worry any more.

        Not that they have stolen my content. Only the name they have put on the pages I don't know what for.
