I have changed DNS but avast is still throwing me alert.
I have contacted support about problem but no luck.

I give up. Avast is blocking clean sites.
Hello,
if you are talking about "polovniautodelovi.com" I see it still hosted on afraid.org.

Always keep in mind that after changing a DNS it takes a while before it is updated everywhere.

polovniautodelovi.com

also on same ip but avast has not blocked this site.

There are no malware/spam on this sites, they are on the same ip, some of them are blocked some not.

Trying to figure out why?
Hello,
either your DNS host (afraid.org) allows creation of subdomains for other persons, or your passwords were stolen or the DNS host itself was hosted, but your domain was clearly used for malicious purposes and was blocked.
Any domain hosted on afraid.org can be used by other persons for dns hosting without your control. It happened for your domain, it was misused for malicious purposes - in that case, when nobody has control on subdomains of domain (DNS hijacking), we block the whole domain in order to protect our users. For you, the solution is most probably only changing the dns hosting and letting us know later.

Milos, you have been missinformed.  Only domains using afraid.org with PUBLIC status can be used without the woner's knowledge to create subdomains.  Any domain using afriad.org's name servers with status PRIVATE require that the owner of the domain screen and approve incoming subdomain creation requests, and the owner can simply deny the requests.
