Company Evaluation

We found out that the administrative contact email address of openthefile.net is a free one. This is not necessarily bad. Larger companies usually use an email address related to the website. Small companies can use a free email address. However the identity of a free email address is not easy to determine.

The International Banking Federation has issued a list of countries which it considers to have a high risk for fraud and corruption. We use this list to check if the website is located in such a country. This seems to be the case for this website. As a result we may reduce the trust score if other risks are also found. We never just reduce the review if they are only based in a high risk country.

Webshop Evaluation

We discovered that the email address used for the registration of openthefile.net is free. Smaller websites often use a free email address from Gmail, Hotmail or one of the other free email providers to safe costs. From larger websites you should expect that they use the domain name for email or a corporate address.

openthefile.net sharing its webserver with multiple other websites. For smaller websites this is quite normal. They do not need all the computer power and internet bandwidth all the time. In this way the can share the costs of the infrastructure with multiple other sites.

We discovered that the website is rated as popular by Alexa with a score of 70988. This means that the website is visited by quite a lot of people. In addition other websites find this website interesting and relevant and are linking to it. As a result we increased our review score.

2 countries are used for the technical set-up of this website. For smaller websites this is uncommon as they usually have one hosting company that arranges everything (the domain name, DNS, firewall, email and webservers). Larger websites and corporates often use multiple companies for these services and as a result several countries can be involved in supporting the website.

Technical Evaluation

We found a valid SSL Certificate. An SSL certificate is used to secure the communication between your computer and the website. There are different levels of SSL certification. A free one is also available and this one is used by online scammers. Still, not having an SSL certificate is worse than having one, especially if you have to enter your contact details.

One or more high risk countries are associated with the infrastructure used by this website. Each website needs a web server, DNS, firewall and email server. In this case one or more of these internet services is located in a country which, according to the International Banking Federation, has a high risk profile, meaning it has issues surrounding fraud and corruption.
