Since your website works fine in my browser, I can only assume that this is an error on your side, in which case:

From what I could tell, is a spyware site, as well as a malware redirect site. So it is malicious. It’s not a major one, though.

A few things I would try:

  • Try a different/newer browser; I personally recommend Falkon
  • Upgrade your server software and install ClamAV on your server and another, preferably new antivirus on your PC and check both for malware.
  • Ensure that your domain is managed from DigitalOcean’s nameservers.

That the site is hosted on DigitalOcean is likely a coincidence.

  • Alright thanks. I use Panda AV and Chromium. I’ll look into Falkon. I also use serverpilot that manages the server for me. I’ll see what else I can do.
