    This question appears to be off-topic because it's not really a security question; it's more of a server configuration question. – Adi Dec 2 '13 at 7:32

As @lucas said, there's really no way that you can stop someone registering a domain and then pointing an "A" record for it, at a server you control.

That said, if this is a problem for you, you could reconfigure your web server (or use something like a Web Application Firewall) to redirect traffic that hits the server from those domain names.

I'd recommend either redirecting it to a static page stating that the domain used has nothing to do with your company, or just redirect them to a 3rd party site, so the content from your server isn't shown with that domain name.


Simply, there is no way. A DNS name translates a domain to an IP, if I want to make a domain thiscompanysucks.com and point it to your IP address, then there is nothing you can do about it.
