Domain Creation Date

Check Geekbuying.com domain creation date:

The domain name was created 7 years ago.

A shopping website created less than 4 months ago is too new and potentially suspicious.

If a domain name is too "young" we may have not enough details to judge it.

I would not buy goods from an online shop created a few months ago.

HTTPS Secure Connection

Check if Geekbuying.com is using HTTPS:

The website is using a valid HTTPS connection.

https secure connection

A secure HTTPS connection encrypts all data sent between you and the remote website.

An online shop that has to handle personal information and payments MUST use an HTTPS connection.

Personally I would NEVER buy something from a site that doesn't use HTTPS.

It is fine for non e-commerce websites to not use HTTPS.

Website Traffic Rank

Check Geekbuying.com Alexa traffic rank:

The website should have a very good traffic.

The website has a traffic rank of #10,838 among millions of other sites according to Alexa data.

Alexa is a popular web service known to rank websites by their estimated popularity.

Websites with a rank of less than 500.000 should have a lot of traffic, a low rank means good traffic.

In case Alexa has not enough data for a website, the rank will be 0.

The rank is not 100% correct, take this in mind.

Recommendations

Useful tips to avoid online scams:

  • I avoid domains that end with .TOP, .CLUB, .ONLINE, .CO, .CC
  • Check the complete WHOIS records to find domain information
  • The website MUST show valid company details like name, street, VAT
  • The "Contacts" page should show also an email address or telephone and NOT just a form
  • Check if the website is a certified site by McAfee SECURE
  • I personally avoid online shops that use free emails (e.g. gmail, hotmail)
  • Beware when a website sells all products with high discounts (e.g. 70% or 90%)
  • Popular brands like Nike, Rayban, Pandora cannot have too low prices
  • Every online shopping website MUST use a secure HTTPS connection
  • If the website shows trust seals like McAfee SECURE or Verisign they MUST be clickable
  • A legit shopping site should have a Facebook or Instagram profile
