I found this phrase "conspiracy website" in some magazine article, but I don't understand what it exactly means.
What kind of website is called "conspiracy website"?

    It's a website which promotes a "conspiracy theory", a term I find not the most appropriate. "Conspiracy" is a vague term (technically, any crime coordinated between more than one person is a conspiracy), and "theory" is much too specific (most so-called "conspiracy theories" don't come even close to presenting a coherent "theory", but rather consist of a bunch of suppositions, allegations, insinuations, cherry-picked facts, prejudices, assumptions, vague statements, unsupported assertions, meanderings, etc.).
