Need some input on a situation concerning a web site I OWN.
« on: January 23, 2012, 08:22:51 AM »
So I just happen to own the name of my city / town here in kansas ( I dabble in buying and selling domain names on occasion ) anyways I just was checking out my site and just happened to put a type-o in the browser and hit enter and avast popped up and blocked the site, below is a screen shot, anyways am I to ASSume that somebody purposely did this for some strange reason just in case there was a type-o and WHY??

Here is MY web site I own http://www.perrykansas.com/

Here is the website that somebody is screwing with and what I accidentally typed and triggered avast to block it.

ww w.perrykansa.com

Just looking for some input on what might be going on and the motive behind it!

I am a hands on computer guy but the in's and out's of the internet are not my specialty.

Ok, I get this: Domain does not exist or is unaccessible.
Also avast! doesn't give any warning here.
