How to remove Black-listed problem from website?

our domain name or IP address domain is blacklisted when it has been found to send out spam e-mail. If your site has been blacklisted, it may not be your fault — especially if you’re on a shared server. It may be that another site on the server has been purposefully sending spam.

It’s also possible that your site, or another site on a shared server, has been hijacked and used for sending spam.

If you are on a shared server, inform your host that the server has been blacklisted and ask your host to investigate. Your host will normally be able to get your site unblacklisted within 24 hours. The host will first check to find out which site has been causing the blacklisting.

If your site is the culprit, the host may take it offline until you can get a security expert to fix whatever is causing the problem.

If your server is a VPS or dedicated server, however, check with your web host. Your host may well say that cleaning the problem and repairing the damage done is your responsibility because it’s your private server.

You can also contact the blacklisting agency yourself by going to its website and completing a form to remove a site from being blacklisted. Make sure that you have fixed any issue first because blacklisting agencies do not take kindly to whitelisting servers that are then very quickly blacklisted again because the issue still exists.

There are a number of phishing warnings, meaning your visitors are being tricked into revealing personal information such as passwords and credit card data. These Google warnings can also mean your site contains malicious advertisements or malvertising. The new unwanted software warning may indicate malicious ads or scams.
