    Hi

    Please let me know if that's the normality, I got a website and notice someone is redirecting their domain name to me site(frame redirect), I contacted UK2 and they told me I need a court order in order to stop this.

    Do I really need to get a court order, as this will be a lengthy process and my site is being damage.

    I just can't belive UK2 wont do anything about it, should I report them to Nominet?

    Thanks

    It's nothing to do with Nominet. If the domain infringes on yours and its being used abusively then you could possibly DRS them.

    You can probably use some code that identifies the redirect and sends it elsewhere.

    Hi JMOT,

    Their traffic is minimal, I think they're trying to fake their page rank or something. I am just scare that I will get penalise by Search engines.

    If you search for 'javascript break out of iframe' or similar there's lots of info, found this example, not tested it. You can probaby add more code to narrow it down to just the offending domain as this will redirect every incoming iframe:

    <SCRIPT TYPE="text/JavaScript">
    if (window != top){top.location.replace("www.wherever.co.uk");}
    </SCRIPT>



    DRS:

    Hi Grant,

    Thanks for the codes, I will search for them.

    The offending domain is a .com, so I am guessing DRS won't cover that.

    It wouldn't cover a .com

    You can also probably use a redirect from .htaccess
