    Hi,
    Can you suggest me what should I do when someone clone your entire website and then change the internal links with their own.

    This just happening on my established wordpress site. They register the same domain with different TLD, clone the entire html and assets (articles, images, site layout, analytics, adsense code, etc.). When I post an article, the site will be updated too.

    They host the cloned site on Netherland (Quasinetworks.com - off shore), which seems to ignore any DMCA Takedown email.

    My first attempt is to report it to google via Search Console. And blocking the website IP range via CSF Firewall.

    unfortunately not much you can do besides DMCA take down notices maybe with web host and their domain registrar ?

    maybe other members will have other suggestions too

    Report it to Google/Bing so that they will be blacklisted on SERP.

    find out the IP address of the website that is copying and then add it to csf.deny

    restart csf so that it won't be able to copy your new posts anymore.
