If you absolutely must continue and you believe the site to be potentially hostile, treat it as such. That means taking steps such as using a VM, perhaps on a machine that you will wipe afterwards to counter risks of something escaping.
If it is a suspicious site that you absolutely have to go to, you should use a computer that you would not care about if it was infected.
You could also try a VM, but technically that is hackable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine_escape
