I'm running a website which is acting extremely strange.

  • At the time of writing, this link works: http://www.example.com
  • This link doesn't: http://example.com
  • But it does work if you copy/paste it and run it in Incognito...
  • This link (after ignoring a warning) serves a totally unrelated and unknown website: https://example.com

I have no idea how to debug this issue. I have contacted the hosting and domain company to investigate the issue. How is the last issue even possible?

Please add some details as to what web server you're using, if you're using a control panel, and if you have an SSL certificate installed. – dan Dec 2 '13 at 0:22
The site uses cPanel, and is running wordpress – joon Dec 2 '13 at 0:37

http://egothieves.com/ redirects to http://www.egothieves.com/. It’s probably a caching issue if it doesn’t work for you (that’s also why it works in private browsing mode for you).

https://www.jevousenprie.com/ seems to be the actual adress of the site that is published at https://egothieves.com/.

Both domains use ns1.tsohost.co.uk/ns2.tsohost.co.uk/ns3.tsohost.co.uk as name servers. Both sites are hosted on the same IP:

It seems that jevousenprie.com is the only domain using a SSL certificate on this server (or maybe the only one that works). So all 40+ domains used on show this site when accessed via HTTPS:

Seems that the server (SNI?) is misconfigured.

Rob on SO seems to have the very same problem: Multiple sites per Apache server with SSL showing wrong site with HTTPS (no answer yet).

That makes it sound like it's out of our hands. Since we are just a single site on a shared hosting, we will contact the hosting company to fix this. – joon Dec 2 '13 at 0:53
