In response, enom sent me the following email:

Your domain name has been reported as redirecting to a phishing website (see URL below). In order to prevent the possible disabling of your domain name, please take the necessary steps in order have the abusive content disbanded. Failure to comply with this request could result in the placing of a registrar-hold on your domain name, which will block DNS resolution to this domain. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.Regards,

I don’t what came into their mind before declaring it a phishing site 🙁 I have already contacted eNom about the issue, let see what happens next 🙂

PS: I dont save passwords or any other details at Blockstatus.com, Terms & Conditions are written there clearly, and user accepts it before using the service!
