I have a site at Some of my would-be users complain that their company firewall is blocking access. At least one user told me it was flagged as a gambling domain, which it is not. What can I do about this?

Incidentally I own some other domains, such as, which redirect to my site. I wonder if a quick workaround would be to make that my main domain and have redirect?

Obviously I prefer in the long terms that is considered clean.

Ask your customers to figure out what filtering system they use? Contact the filtering company and them request the site classification be checked. – Zoredache Sep 11 '12 at 20:52
@DKNUCKLES It sounds more like he's talking about web filtering (to me), so I don't think MTAs have anything to do with it. – HopelessN00b Sep 11 '12 at 20:57
Ah my apologies - I just assumed it was e-mail related (don't know why tho) Comment removed! – DKNUCKLES Sep 11 '12 at 22:59
Have you considered getting a domain name that doesn't look like it's for gambling? Long term you may find that to be the best and most reliable solution. – John Gardeniers Sep 11 '12 at 23:03

You need to contact the vendors of the firewalls in question to get your domain re-categorized.

It's not listed as a gambling domain by Websense, so there's one off the list.
