Company Evaluation

The owner of the website is hiding his identity. Spammers use this information to promote services to website owners. Some website owners therefor chose to hide their contact details. However, it can also be misused by scammers. Our algorithm gives a high rating if the identity of the website owner is shown.

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

yobit.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 9499. 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.

We have checked several other websites like Sitejabber, Resellerrating and Trustpilot for reviews of yobit.net but could not find any comments. This is a negative finding as any website who offers a service or product usually has several reviews at least. As a result we lowered our trust score.

3 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.
