    Howdy, whenever i enter a url into my browser that doesn't actually link to a site(e.g blank.blank/) or click an old link that no longer links to a site i am redirected to a page that says "

    If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

    For online documentation and support please refer to nginx.org.
    Commercial support is available at nginx.com.

    Thank you for using nginx."

    this never happened before and i don't know whats causing it, i know it isn't a virus on my computer because ive tried on other computers in the house and it happens as well, so im assuming its something to do with the DNS or router, any help on how to get rid of it?
