That's very handy considering that no antivirus software solution is offering 100% protection against malicious software and viruses.
The developers of No Virus Thanks have created URLVoid which uses the same concept for website urls.
Individual security applications like Kaspersky Internet Security or Norton Internet Security and browser add-ons like Web of Trust can scan websites for malicious code to protect users from visiting potentially dangerous sites.
The website virus checker URLVoid is a service for users who want to double-check specific urls before they visit them in their browser of choice.
It is also a handy service for webmasters who want to make sure that their websites are not in that list. Helpful for instance after a successful hacking attack against a website that you are a webmaster of.
A website can be checked for viruses and other malicious code by entering its url into the form on the URL Void website. Copy and paste works best most of the times especially if its not a root domain that needs to be scanned.
URL Void processes the website and displays two informational blocks on the results page.
The first block lists general information about the website including its IP address, country it is hosted in and the hosting company that is hosting the website.
The second block lists the scan results of the supported scripts.
Included in the list are Web of Trust, Spamhaus, TrendMicro Web Reputation, Google Diagnostic and Norton SafeWeb among others.
Links to each website virus scanner are provided to give the user the option to recheck the website at the developer's website.
URL Void is a handy online service to check a website for viruses and other malicious code before you visit that website in your browser.
Webmasters and domain owners can use it to verify that their domains are not blacklisted by some of these services as it may impact traffic in numerous ways.
Update: Please note that Virustotal is offering a similar url scanning feature now as well.Advertisement
