New Web Host

I was surprised upon visiting my website earlier. Seeing a "banned" notice. I thought it was for my website. Apparently, my web host (http://www.freewebtown.com), has been reported as an attack site and this was identified and blocked by Google. Ergo, if you have Google toolbar installed in your browsers, then my website goes unavailable.


Here's a screenshot of the notice. You may click to enlarge


If by any case you have clicked on "Why was this site blocked?" button, here's a transcript of the report stated:

Please be informed that the web address will still be the same.
