Secure a hijacked visitor tracker code

This tutorial explains how to enable a functionality to restrict the usage of a visitor tracker code to your project’s primary domain name. This feature is useful if the project’s landing pages indicate that your visitor tracker code has been hijacked and utilized under an unauthorized domain name.

To check the project’s most frequent landing pages, go to “My Projects” page and click on the “Stats Menu” button for the corresponding project. Next select “Outside of Project’s Domain” report from the “PAGES” drop down menu. This report will show url paths where your project’s content along with the TraceMyIP visitor tracker code was loaded. If you see your own website url paths under this report, you may not have specified your project’s Website URL properly. This can be corrected under project’s settings. If the report does indicate that your TraceMyIP visitor tracker code was placed under an unauthorized domain name, you can remotely disable it.

Navigate to “My Projects” page and click on the “edit” link for the corresponding project.

From the “Domain Tracker Security” drop down menu, select “Active” option, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Update” button.

Your TraceMyIP visitor tracker code is now protected and cannot be loaded under any domain name that does not match the domain name of your project. Note that if your project’s website URL is not properly specified and the “Domain Tracker Security” feature is enabled, it may cause your statistics not to be collected properly.

The project’s URL can be qunder the project’s settings which can be accessed by clicking on the project’s “edit” link which can be found on “My Projects” page.

The “website URL” of the project must contain the domain name that is shown in landing pages of your page loads report.
