    Check if the website is an actual one

    If you want to confirm the true address of the webpage you are looking at, type the following simple Javascript code into the address bar of your browser to display the true URL in a pop-up box:

    javascript:alert("True root URL = " + location.protocol +"//" + location.hostname + "/");

    By the way, if you save this code as a favorite in Internet Explorer’s “links” folder, it will be ready to click whenever you feel the need to check exactly what page you are looking at. To do this:
    • Be aware that browser security is an oxymoron. It is conceivable that phishers may be able to find a way to alter the location.protocol and location.hostname parameters used in the Javascript ... in which case maybe I’ll join you in that cave after all ...

    Ever tried using the wayback machine of alexa fame and seeing the history of how old a site is?

    Thank you for sharing. It can really help a fellow out, especially nowadays where phishing is rampant. Are there any more ways to find out if a certain site is authentic or not?
