Why is my WEBSITE labeled suspicious?

I've had a web domain for a few years that I've never used. Went to use it today for the first time, got an email address for the first time today. homing.us

When i go to my site, it says that it is suspicious and being blocked. I've already learned how to disable security shield, but this means my customers may not be able to see my site.

How do I appeal my site being suspicious with Spectrum? Is there a way to find out if other ISPs are also blocking it?

    Welcome to the Forums:

    If your domain is homing.us, it looks like one Security Vendor on Virus Total flagged it as malicious.

    Thanks for the info C22 - love the name BTW it feels like I'm perpetually stuck in it…

    This domain has been parked in godaddy parking for several years since I bought it and hasn't even had a website associated with it.

    Any idea how I go about fixing this? I'll try and contact the company, but not at all knowledgeable on this stuff!

    homing.us is redirecting to homing.com which appears to be fine so all i can figure is that it's essentially the redirection that's being blocked as it could also be with various relevant browser settings or extensions. Furthermore, it's currently indexing fine via the Bing search engine but not Google's so, if you consider that to be any kind of a biggie, i guess you could try converting the homing.com website to a WWW sub-domain website and see what happens.

    🔗https://www.bing.com/search?q=homing.us : top result currently = homing.com

    🔗https://www.google.com/search?q=homing.us : currently nothing relevant
