WebSite Checkup

The WebSite Checkup section shows the results of a website testing considering the next essential parameters:

SSL Certificate - checks the presence of a Secure Socket Layer Certificate on a website. The information sent on the Internet is passed from computer to the destination server. Any computer in between a user and a server is able to get usernames, passwords and such important details as, for instance, credit cards. SSL certificate encrypts all information, including sensitive one.

Valid certificate - checks the validity of an SSL certificate (if present).

Server signature test - checks whether your server returns its own version. If it does, the check is considered as not passed. A server signature is the public identity of a web server. It contains sensitive information that could be used to exploit a vulnerability. You should turn your server signature OFF to secure it and avoid disclosure of what versions of software you are running.

Have robots.txt - checks the presence of robots.txt file on a website. Robots.txt is a standard that websites use to communicate with crawlers and robots. It informs the robot about which areas of the website it should or should not process or scan.

Have sitemap.xml - checks the presence of sitemap.xml file on a website. A sitemap includes a list of pages on a website that are accessible to crawlers or users.

IP canonicalization test - normally, a server IP address should forward to a website domain via 301 (redirect). If there is different response code the test is considered as not passed.

Trash page test - checks if non-existent URLs return 404 response code. If they don't, the check is considered as not passed.

Directory browsing test - checks if the content of a website directory folders is available for viewing from a browser. In this case, the check is considered as not passed.
