WOT website cannot handle unusual TLDs

Post by Constantine_I » Wed Jun 03, 2015 8:14 am

When attempting to view the scorecard for a website with an unusual top-level domain name (e.g. scsc.wtf or aur.ix.tc), the WOT website claims that it cannot find the scorecard for that website, even if the website is valid and active.

However, rating such websites from the add-on seems to work.

.tc is not a new or unusual TLD, this is the domain for Turks and Caicos Islands available since 1997
[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.tc t=_self]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.tc[/url]

Scorecards for .tc existed for a long time and do work fine here, ex:
[url=https://www.mywot.com/ru/scorecard/ru.tc t=_self]https://www.mywot.com/ru/scorecard/ru.tc[/url]

Ratings can be saved, however they don't work and hence can't affect a reputation of unexisting domain.

Thank you Nick Vini for your reply.

Sorry about that - I just tested aur.ix.tc now, and I can indeed access the scorecard. It is only scsc.wtf that does not work.

I seemed to remember being unable to access the scorecard for aur.ix.tc in the past, but I must be confusing it with something else.

It's getting exploited on the forums. At https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/56616-ad4x-com the site owner posted live links that cannot be rated. The TLD is .cash

There is an explosion of TLDs (Top Level Domains). Why can't mywot do a better job with keeping up with this?

I'd like to second this. Wanted to report a website ending with .party, this TLD is not supported by WOT :-(

Ditto -- employeesurvey.network looks to be a nasty phishing site, but I can't give it the rating it deserves because ".network TLD".

Can't handle TLD work

https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/thegenericwebmart.work

No results found
We cannot find the scorecard for the site (thegenericwebmart.work) you entered. Please check the domain name for errors and try again.

Just for the record, ".site" (2015-03-06 DotSite Inc.) doesn't seem to be supported.
I just ran into one spammer on .site, I haven't checked the other tld-s.

It that helps, full and updated .tld list available at:

Soon the meaning of ".tld" will cease to exist and we shall be prepared to accept any ending...

.tld != .gtld ;o)

These new ones are gTLD' not TLD'. Though I tend to agree as far as accepting anything now (there's a list of those available on the IANA site -> http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db )
