    That's a weird thing to be happening. Care to name the domains in question?

    Anyway, using IP-based hosting, there is nothing directly you can do to stop him announcing his IP address to be that of yours.

    However, fortunately for you, due to name-based virtual hosting, http/1.1 onwards get browsers to also transmit the name of the host being contacted.

    You can indeed filter this out in your nginx config, by specifying a default server entry (which can be used to send an abusive message!) using:

    server_name _;

    followed by another specific server entry that matches your domain, using:

    server_name my-domain.com www.my-domain.com some-other-accepted-name.com etc.

    More information here, but read through it all, as some of the answers there are incorrect! https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9824328/why-is-nginx-responding-to-any-domain-name
