From what I've read on other answers, it feels like you're asking specifically how your ISP is managing to add "blocked.aspx" to the end of your domain. If that's the case, let's look at a case study: You have a web server running on http://mysite.mine/, which a public, completely trustworthy DNS resolves to public IP 10.0.0.1. You can browse to ...

You asked: how can the ISPs redirect other people into another directory Strictly speaking, they're not. They're redirecting people to another server. This has to do with how DNS works. Other answers have covered this broadly, so I'll go into a little more detail: When someone goes to http://www.example.com/, the browser first makes a DNS request ...

ISPs usually run their own DNS servers, which their customers use by default (usually because the customers neglect to change this). This allows the ISP to re-direct traffic to any domain name to a different server, simply by returning a false IP address for that domain name. Among other flaws, this allows the ISP to re-direct "blocked" websites to their own ...

You need to talk to you ISP to determine why they are doing what they are doing. Open a ticket with a complaint about this.

On that IP address, they can host the page that shows you the warning message. The ISP does not alter your ...

As you already said: If I change my DNS to google DNS, the site can be viewed normally. So it has something to do with DNS. Your ISP provides his own DNS-Servers and he has a list of blocked domains. When you now query the IP-address of a blocked domain your ISP will not respond with the correct ip-address but with a ip-address of his own servers (or ...

The thing is if you're missing a virtual host for a domain in Apache (i.e. a virtual host for www.abc.co.in for HTTPS - 443), then accessing a a subdomain pointing to the webserver will display the first virtual host from the Apache configuration. In this case what I assume is happening is that you don't have a virtual host for your domain on port 443 and ...

If you are using an Apache webserver as basis, it can also be due to the Apache web server / security settings. Check the rerouting / SSL configuration of your apache installation and verify the if you added the correct target URL.

What you want to do is set up a separate site for your landing page. In the landing page you want to have the bindings set up for whatever domain names you want to land there. This would leave the default website as a fallback for any other names entered.
