Website flagged as phishing



My website has been flagged as Phishing over the past few days and I'm unsure as to why... (admins can message me for web addresses)

I'm a developer at a local school in Australia and am using the site to manage our student enrolments, orientation details, reporting among other on the fly developed apps/wordpress sites to replace many of the paper based processes that we have in our school.

It has been flagged previously but a re-categorization request has resolved the issue (for the last 18 months) but it has again appeared. However after a review yesterday the categorisation was not changed and it remains as phishing.


I have changed the landing page so a user must click before accessing any of my "sub-sites" where previously it directed you straight to a login page as there is no content I want the public to see without a password that I/we generate and send out. If that helps I'm unsure but I have put in recategorization requests again today.


I also noticed when doing a reverse IP lookup I still have listed as a domain associated with the IP. I've since logged in and removed the nameservers from that domain just in case that was an issue?


I today purchased a new domain as a work around however this was then flagged as categorized within hours after I migrated the sites across. Not ideal when you have thousands of students trying to sign up for next year. (admins can DM me for the new domain name)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
