Here are examples of other pages like alisalis[.]com: go9news[.]biz, speakwithjohns[.]com and exq-timepieces[.]com. Quite often browsers open websites of this type when some potentially unwanted app (PUA) installed on them. Also, sites alisalis[.]com can be opened through other questionable pages, or shady ads. Simply said, people do not visit such pages on purpose. It is worthwhile to mention that PUAs can be designed to gather browsing-related data and/or serve various advertisements as well.
When visited, alisalis[.]com either opens a couple (2-3) of questionable websites or loads some shady content. The way such pages operate depends on visitor's geolocation.

Those ads can open untrustworthy websites, or cause downloads (or even installations) of other unwanted, potentially malicious programs by running certain scripts. Also, PUAs often are designed to collect various information. For example, IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages, geolocations, and other browsing data. Sometimes they are designed to record sensitive information as well. Either way, their developers could sell collected information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who would misuse it to generate revenue. It means that users who have such apps installed on a browser and/or operating system are exposed to risks of becoming victims of identity theft problems related to browsing safety, online privacy, and other issues. Therefore, any installed PUA should be uninstalled as soon as possible.

However, it usually happens during download and/or installation processes of other software. It is common that PUAs are distributed by including them in various (download or/and installation) setups. This distribution method is called "bundling". Most of the times information about additionally included apps is not disclosed properly, it is hidden in setup's settings such as "Custom", "Advanced, and other similar settings. Users who do not check those settings/leave them unchanged allow for included applications to be downloaded and/or installed together with programs that they download and/or install on purpose.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Therefore, they should not be used as tools to download or install any programs or files. It is recommended to download everything only from official websites and through direct links. Furthermore, download and/or installation setups that contain "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings should be analyzed. Those settings often mention offers to download and/or install additionally included, unwanted applications. Intrusive advertisements often open various kinds of untrustworthy websites. Moreover, they can be designed to cause downloads, installations of unwanted applications by running certain scripts. Therefore, such ads should not be clicked. And finally, it is recommended to to make sure that there are no unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons or plug-ins installed on a browser and programs of this kind installed on the operating system.
