My website appears to have been kidnapped. When I type in my web address (www.webhistoryofengland.com) all my content has isappeared, and some totally random ebook rubbish is there instead. I can't log in, and when I try to, it tells me my login is invalid. Help!
Yeah same, I don't think it's that link, go to the link in her profile and you'll see what she's talking about, it is pretty odd, I've not heard of that happening before, but yes as others have suggested contact your hosting provider.
From the info you have provided, it looks like one of 2 things has happened. 1. Your site has been hacked, and the content redirected.
2. Your domain name has been transferred away from you, and ownership taken over by someone else.
The domain name is connected to a hosting company using the nameservers at MYMIZBAN.com which appears to be an Arabic web host, by the look of their website. Is this correct? The registrant of the domain is shown as Protected Domain Services of Denver. Is this correct?
If the answers to the above questions are both YES, and you cannot access your hosting control panel then it would appear that the site has been hacked in some way, and you need to contact your hosting company. Either or both of your hosting or wordpress admin passwords could have been compromised, or perhaps a security flaw in your database or wordpress has allowed some kind of hacking to occur. If this has happened, it is straightforward to restore the website from a recent backup. I hope you have one.
If the answers to one or both of the questions are "NO", then you have a different problem, and your domain name has been stolen from you
Please email me through hubpages if you'd like to provide full information about this, so that I can check it out a bit better.
OK: It's short for No Wuckin' Forries. (Tranpose the "W" and the "F" if you're still puzzled"
This is then shortened to "No Wuckas" Try it on Earnetshub or some other Aussies. they'll be amazed at your knowledge of Aussie slang.
@KCC Big Country: Smart is relative. I've been involved in this sort of stuff for around 10 years, and have picked up a bit of info about it. but I'd probably be totally stupid on some of the topics you know about!
Did not see them offering hosting services, hence the question. Yes, I think your only option right now is their customer service. Call them ASAP. If they don't answer in UK, call them in USA - but this is only tomorrow. 202 is Washington DC, 720 is Denver CO... http://www.name.com/contactus
Something you can try right now is to see if you can log into the control panel of your domain name registrar. If you can't that's something only your registrar can address.
If you can log in and your domain is not there, then it has been transferred (or in the process of being transferred) to someone else.
If your domain name is still showing there, change the contact email address back to your address. Also change the password of the account to something secure which uses a combination of lettersm numbers, and symbols and
something like rt^5E<=kD (don't use that)
If your domain name is still in your registrar account, then hopefully it's a simple matter of changing the nameservers back to the ones that connect to your own webhost.
(got to go. discussion will be posted later.)
One other question - Was your domain "locked" at the registrar?
