Deny access on domain name


(Adam Hesim) #1

Hello,
(please excuse my bad english)
I’ve just setup my instance on a new dedicated server and it seems like Discourse is showing on every domain pointing to my server’s IP.
This is a problem because I think this IP was used by an other site back in time and now when I search “mysite.com” in Google, there are a lot of results from “oldsite.com” which is indeed pointing to my Discourse instance.
How can I redirect users which arrive on the server with oldsite.com domain name, or show an error page ? I know how to do this whith Apache vhosts but Docker and RoR server are new for me.

Thank you for your help.

https is the only effective / simple answer to this scenario at the moment.

Search for “using apache” to find information about configuring another web server to work with your discourse install.
