Webshop Evaluation

payfast.co.za 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 39366. 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 tested the speed of the payfast.co.za and discovered that it is quite low. The speed of the website may differ across time. It may be a temporarily problem. It may however also mean that the owner of the website has not invested in a good performing website. Speed is considered one of the most important factors to keep customers happy on your website. A website that performance less than average might therefor be an indicator of an online scam.

We could not find a valid SSL certificate. Especially for professional online stores this is a red flag. Any reasonable sized website makes sure communication between your browser and the website is secure. For smaller blogs or content sites a missing SSL certificate may be a little bit superfluous.
