It's easy to check your website using some online web tools, and it's free. You just need to know what to use, and how to use these tools.

First tool, using Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page. Here's an example results for a website www.king.net. 



How do you check your own website using Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic tool? It's easy, just copy the page www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=king.net, replace king.net using your own website, and press [Enter] to see the result. What you see below is a result for king.net website. If you noticed I used www.king.net for the first image capture, and king.net for the second image sample. I suggest that you try this approach for your website.
