Webshop Review

It is quite common that websites share their internet infrastructure (server CPU power, disc space and Internet access) with other websites. This is what ow.ly is doing as well. For smaller websites this is very logical as they do not need all the infrastructure all the time. From a larger brand or high traffic website it is expected that they have their own infrastructure.

We upped our review of the website as it has been given a high ranking by Alexa. Alexa ranks websites based on popularity (how many people are visiting the website every month) and listings (how many other websites link to the site because they consider it valuable).

Many websites have added a link to this website. This usually is a strong indicator that the website is popular or relevant.

Consumer reviews are an essential component for any self-respecting company selling products or services online. We therefor always check for ow.ly reviews on other websites like Trustpilot, Resellerrating and Sitejabber. Unfortunately we could not find any. As a consequence we lowered our trust score.

Technical Review

No SSL certificate could be found. For smaller websites who only share content and do not require you to create an account or fill in a form, they is still okay. For any other website this is a serious security breach as communication between your computer or mobile and the website is not secured.
