    Hi. I have a 5-letter pronounceable, brandable domain. I installed wordpress on it. It got hacked and some phishing pages were put to it. I use google chrome and now when I go to the site, it warns me about potential phishing.

    1. If I fix the domain and hosting and remove all infected files, is there a way to remove this warning?
    2. Am I right in assuming I won't be able to rank with this domain anymore because it got infected?
    3. All in all, do you think it's worth saving the domain or should I just let it drop?

    [rant] By the way, for anyone using Arvixe as a host, be careful. Some of their departments take 3 days to reply. My hosting account got suspended around Nov 25 and until now, all my sites are down because support takes forever to reply and not very helpful at all. [/rant]

    It's most likely worth saving.

    Right here
    Yes, 5 word pronouncable and a .com? It's worth some money - more than 10 years' worth of registration fees, that's for sure :) Can't say for sure how much but just throwing it away would be a waste.
