URLVoid is a free website scanner to check reputation of any website. You can provide URL of any website, and it will tell you if it is known to have malware or other threats that can harm your PC. So, without even visiting a website, you can know if a website is safe or not. This is handy if you have received URL of some suspicious sounding website, and are not sure if it is safe to open that website on your computer.
URLVoid is quite easy to use. Just head over to URLVoid.com, and enter the URL of the website that you want to check. URLVoid will then check that website with multiple online scanners, and will report results for the scan.
Here are some of the scanners that URLVoid uses to check reputation of a website:
- Google Diagnostic
- McAfee SiteAdvisor
- McAfee Trusted Source
- Norton SafeWeb
- ParentLogic URL Clearing House
- Project Honeypot
- TrendMicro Web Reputation
- Web Security Guard
- ZeuS Tracker
Each of these website scanners are highly regarded as one of the best website scanners, and we have already written about many of these in our article on free link scanners. And URLVoid checks the website with all these website scanners together. That’s quite impressive.
This website scanner will be especially useful for me. I get lot of requests to review software, and some of those websites look plain suspicious. Now I can check such websites with this online website scanner, without risking to actually open those in my browser.
URLVoid also comes with a link scanner that can scan any exact link for threats, instead of scanning that website in general.
