Godaddy Domain Hacked

 

I registered a domain (.com) 1 year back (it was not old domain it was a fresh domain)
And still it is not expired i have kept it to use in future.
today i just did a google search of my domain and guess what?
there are 1000+ ACTIVE subdomain (of my domain) which are indexed on google

 

(name.mydomain.com) and the worst part is all the various websites on my subdomain are LIVE
how it is even possible?
i am sure my Godaddy account is hacked!

Hi @abhishek121,

 

Welcome to the Community!

Unless you have hosting with GoDaddy, it's not at all likely that your domain is "hacked". You can easily check your domain to see if subdomains have been added to the DNS (chaeck "Manage DNS" in the Domain Manager listing). If you are hosting somewhere else, you may check with that host to see if subdomains were added to your website there.

 

What's more likely is that you have a domain that was in existence before you registered it.It could have been in use, expired, returned to the registry, then registered new by you. The information you are seeing is data cached by Google (not GoDaddy) over the history of the domain. You will need to contact Google to request the removal of this data.
