How to identify fake URL links? 4 Ways to Identify Fraudulent Websites

In our life, we often hear that some people are deceived after clicking on the links sent by others. From poisoning, it caused a lot of economic losses. So how do we judge whether the link someone sends you is legitimate? If we can’t determine the source of this link, we have to be careful.

Today, I will teach you three methods to accurately identify the source and authenticity of domain name links. There is a high probability that your losses can be avoided.

1. Domain Name Identification

Many experienced people can judge by looking at whether the links sent by others are legitimate. For example, we need to have an understanding of the domain name addresses of some banks and important units. Generally, such domain names are relatively simple and have a certain degree of awareness.

And fake links, you just don’t know what his address is? Just for fear of you seeing it. At this time, you need to find its address. Generally, there are three point operation buttons in the upper right corner, and there is a copy URL in it. After copying, we paste it into a notepad and then carefully screen it, it is easy to judge.

Fake website domains are generally messy. Another point that everyone should pay attention to is that if the link is opened, it must be his official website if it does not look like the official website of so-and-so. Or use his real domain name to judge. This is also a common method used by fake websites.

2. Domain name record query method

Generally, the links sent by others will be very long, and we really can’t judge. At this time, we must find the root domain name. After finding the root domain name, we know which website the link comes from, and then we check the attribution of this website. Where did he come from and who managed it. Certain fake websites cannot be found.

Now the domestic domain name management is very strict, as long as it is a domestic website address, it needs to be strictly filed. You can go to the National Information Management Center’s record management website for inquiries. Whether this domain name has a record, there is a record to see if it is the same organization as the content of the promotion. The reliability can generally be judged.

There is also no record of foreign websites in China. If the address sent by others cannot find any information, it is necessary to be careful. Especially when some funds are involved.

3. Domain name index search

If we still can’t judge whether the domain name is legitimate? Then we can copy this link address to the search engine and search it. Generally, regular website addresses have a large number of included pages. And fake addresses will block search engine indexing. so you can’t find any links.

Domestic Baidu, Sogou, 360 Search, foreign Google, and Bing can all be compared. If the address does not leave any information on the network, it is highly unlikely to be reliable.

4. National anti-fraud link detection

We download the national anti-fraud APP, and after downloading, find the IP/URL query in the risk query. If the address has been reported, or someone has been deceived, it will be included in the national security agency, and there will be a risk warning. Generally speaking, you won’t be the first to be scammed with fake links, they will cast a large net.

The national security department is also constantly detecting such addresses through big data. If there is an abnormality, it will be processed. If it is an illegal address, it will be included in the fraudulent address information database.


Through the above four methods, you can generally judge the authenticity of a website link and whether it is a fake website. Do not click on links sent by others at will, and have an accurate understanding of the address of the link. At present, more than 90% of telecom frauds come from abroad. If you can’t find any information, you must be careful, and don’t let your guard down when others say it is a foreign website.
