Hi,

some days ago I've installed UniServer on my PC. Today I was doing some searches trough Google and... I was entered into my PC by http://dp.000.in/!!!

How can that happen?

Thanks a lot.
Nino

By "Today I was doing some searches trough Google" I meant that I tried to use the famous search engine called "Google"

By "I was entered into my PC by [url="http://dp.000.in/""]http://dp.000.in/"[/url] I meant that in the list of sites containing the information there was this website "http://dp.000.in/" and opening it I "entered" (is this word the confusing one?) that is it was opened my locale uniformserver root or, if you prefer, I was directed to my local server (uniformserver).

If you still don't understand, don't worry... I'll find a solution.

Bye,
Nino

PS I'm not scared off... I'm surprised by this new "galateo". Sorry

Yep! Many Thanks for “I hope that moment is definetely off.”

Well I engaged brain and looked the domain “dp.000.in” up using:

http://centralops.ne...ainDossier.aspx

It returns: canonical name dp.000.in. and aliases addresses 127.0.0.1

The alias 127.0.0.1 is the local loop address and explains why you see your server page.

If you click all check boxes and perform another run you get a lot of data about that domain!

I have no idea what its purpose is.

You can always block the domains by editing your host file:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Add the following lines:
127.0.0.1 dp.000.in
127.0.0.1 www.dp.000.in
127.0.0.1 000.in
127.0.0.1 www.000.in

Entering above domains in a browser will still display your server’s web pages however an external request to resolve these domains is not made.

All the best
Ric :)
