The warning wasn't for Planet Renders itself, but for a separate site - software-traffic.com. You may have been going through a redirect, or Planet Renders may have had an iframe with content from that site on it.

Software-traffic.com looks to have a bad reputation: http://www.stopbadware.org/reports/cont ... nt=1090272

I just Googled Planet Renders, and the WOT indication and AVG real-time scan plugins for Firefox both said there's nothing to worry about. I also visited the page, with no warning received.

Did you click on an advertisement to go to planet renders, or did you type in the URL? I know many advertisements use a redirect structure, with a third-party site acting as the traffic source logger then handing off to the URL the person actually wants, but it you typed in the URL directly, planetrenders.net may have had an advertisement block from the suspected third-party site.
