Seems We Can Never Be Too Careful

Yes something else to Caution you about, to be on the Safe-Side.


See what you make of this: Some correspondence I’ve had in 6 Emails over the last few weeks. Please keep in mind that these are Official Support messages – not fake Scam Emails purporting to be the Company concerned. I was led to believe this was a legit company in recent years by two Webhosting Companies. Keep in mind also that the Website they are reporting to me “they have scanned” for my protection no longer exists.

It was a Basekit Website with discontinued Support by the Webhosting Company about 2 years ago, I had no more access to and the Domain was Cancelled well over a year ago. You may draw your own conclusions. I received this identical Email on June 22nd, June 28th, July 9th, July 15th, 22nd and a different domain on the 22nd, 28th and 29th I also cancelled ages ago. When I checked the 1st domain out of interest, a Company in Japan purchased it a year ago but no website comes up on the Net.

I can only conclude they have not ceased their Services or updated their Records when I Cancelled Services with Hostgator some time ago.
Either way, I Cancelled those Domains a long time ago because Hostgator stopped supporting a Sitebuilder called BaseKit – they changed their minds and I lost 3 Websites I made with it . Like I’ve stated, they no longer exist!

l will let you solve the mystery here. Seems their Service Ethics are Corrupt, giving fraudulent information as follows. At-least, their Practices are
Very Questionable!

As a Safety Measure: please be very careful of Companies who say they Scanned your Website and want to remove Malware for a Fee of whatever amount. From memory, theirs is about $110USD for removal of “Malware” and the same amount each year, to keep it off your website.
Like I said, I Cancelled the account with the previous Webhost also, months ago!

I noticed this statement in someone’s article: Sectigo acquired the world’s best cybersecurity products developer
SiteLock to keep websites safe and secured.

And I ask myself how much of the above is true? Do we believe ‘everything’ we read and hear? So many do that. I want to ask a Federal MP if they’re acknowledged by the Government because I did get those Emails from them in my Inbox in recent months and a few more some months ago. So be Careful. Whatever the facts, they sound dodgy to me. A competent and reputable Company would not be making fallacious reports of ‘detected malware’ on Websites that no longer exsist (that’s two of them) and you Cancelled the Services of the Webhosts who employ their services sometime ago, would they?

Some Practical Help

I will see if I can find a Link I was given a few years ago from a Private IT Expert to an ethical Website Anti-Malware Practice who has a Legit Webpage, you can check for yourself if a Website has Malware on it or not.

Back again: it did not seem right to leave you without a Solution.………………………………
Place your domain name where the dots are in their Official Scan and it will give you an Accurate Assessment on a Slide Bar if your Website
does have Malware and if it is a Minimum Low Medium High or Critical risk.
