Unable to verify my Website Ownership

Post by RED_ » Thu Dec 19, 2013 12:47 pm

I tried adding meta & html files. But none of the procedures worked.

My website is https://studiox.cd/

I downloaded the html file & put it in the place as recommended. It can be accessed: https://studiox.cd/mywot95e5d9e1829a9738d89b.html

I am still getting "Your server did not return a valid HTTP code (You returned 301 when you should have returned 200). Check the file (mywot95e5d9e1829a9738d89b.html) exists and that it is not behind password authentication or hidden from public view."

I don't know why our site is flagged as a spamming site with abusive content & adult material. This is COMPLETELY opposite of the purpose of the site's existence.

I need to claim & thereby evaluate evaluate the site.


PLEASE help me.

There was a bug on our verification system, which is now fixed. Please try to verify again.

Would anyone please help me fixing the reputation of my site?
It's been more than 24 hours & I haven't received any replies yet.

If there is a staff around, please look at my issue.

When I checked, your WOT rating was "unknown" (insufficient users have rated) - neither Good nor Bad reputation.

Unfortunately most WOT forum users won't see enough informtion to comment as all they can access is the home page unless they "sign up".

As an aside: There are 3 score card comments all positive (and coincidentally posted on the same day). One of which is by you. As I understand it there is no problem with people commenting on their own site, but they should identify themselves as the owner/employee.

One problem you have (unrelated to WOT) is that if users enter WWW in front of your domain name (http or https) then browsers block or warn that your site has an invalid certificate. Only if users ignore this warning will they be redirected to the non WWW https address. see hxxp://stackoverflow.com/a/11648537 for an explanation.

I also have a site that uses URLs without the WWW; and many users are still in the habit of adding WWW to the begining of any addresses they type.

Unfortunately, I think the only ways to solve this are either to buy an additional certificate; or, rather than do a redirect provide the user with a link they have to click to go to the non-www address (not very elegant).


Hope this helps

This bug is still present, I can't verify my https site either. Help would be appreciated.

For an "https site" you must contact the WOT staff (support@mywot.com) for individual assistance.

Is there any reason WOT hasn't activated HTTPS verification yet? It would seem like a very simple task to do. I do realize that it is possible to run two completely different websites on HTTP and HTTPS (I know both Apache and nginx can do it), but they would still be under the same domain and thus the same owner would be assumed responsible for both sites.
