Hi There,

I have a server purchased from rackshack.net which appears to be on a recycled I.P. address receiving huge amounts of traffic. At the moment the server is experiencing 40 http requests per second from sites that arent even hosted on it anymore.

When I type the I.P address I get a nice graphical "No Website Exists Here" message from CPanel that I would like to remove, how do I do this.

Btw, here is a copy of some of my Apache usage. Does this look strange to anyone? (secure.jhservers203.com is the host name).

Yes, that does seem wierd. Have you tried to ping the address that it trying to look for? Try contacting the owner of that domain via a lookup and ask him to change the dns on his account as it is causing you problems, or contact rackshack and ask for a new IP address for your server.
