Hello @sandyseagreenboat

I’ll recommend checking those reports and confirming if the issue is actually related to the DNS or the content of the site/application hosted on the server.

Hi @sandyseagreenboat,

What do you mean malicious? This is the first time I’m hearing such a thing, where you point your Domain to anywhere will present you with such an issue. Can you please configure your Nameservers and the steps you take before you see the said issue?
