I have my website hosted on a dedicated IP. When I checked, other 3 unknown domains appear to be hosted on that IP and these are clones of my site.
My site is cleanbytes.net and the clones are zealusion.com, fringe-fx.info and fringe-fx.og
It seems to be sort of an attack, maybe I have many net "friends". Do you know what kind of DNS attack is this, the hosting company seems to be not guilty about this situation.

Is your server configured to return content without requiring a hostname? (seeing this for a while with other sites)

The DNS zone was misconfigured, there were left some entries from the websites preeviously hosted on my dedicated IP. The host was puzzled a bit about this situation but solved it profesionally. In total there were 5 "clones". I was scared for nothing ;D
