Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)

Recommended Posts

I run 2 webservers (abyss) on 2 PCs - both with home weather stations. One is on port 80 and the other on port 8000 - if I access the PC just using my top level domain (i.e. http port 80) via Firefox 74.0 if connects fine but if I try and access the other PC on port 8000 Browser Guard blocks me with the message "Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)". The TLD is the same in both cases so why is it being blocked on port 8000 but not on port 80?

Any suggestions anybody?

Whitelisted theoldschool.info.  Did not follow up yesterday because you said you could reach the site using the domain name.  Today it was blocked. Should be accessible within the hour.

Excellent - thanks. Do you know why it was blacklisted?

It is probably the .info TDL.

We show extreme caution on the non-standard TLDs.  info/cc/xyz, etc.  They get misused way too often.
