Domain Name Analysis

Check Aliexpress.com domain with our database of "scam" words:

No suspicious words found in the domain name.

A legit shopping website should not use a branded name (i.e. rayban) in the domain name.

Only the original manufacturer (i.e. RayBan) should use its brand name in the domain name.

This option should help identify potentially fake online shopping sites.

HTTPS (SSL) Connection

Check if Aliexpress.com uses a valid HTTPS secure connection:

This site uses an HTTPS secure connection.

Issued FromGlobalSign nv-sa
Valid ToDecember 15, 2017, 4:43 am

An HTTPS secure (encrypted) connection is recommended for online shops and e-commerce websites.

So when you submit sensitive information they are securely transmitted over HTTPS.

I would never enter my credit card details in a non-HTTPS website.

Website Popularity

Check if Aliexpress.com is popular among Internet users:

This site has a very good online popularity.

Aliexpress.com is ranked #42 among millions of websites according to Alexa rank.

An Alexa rank higher than 0 and less than 500,000 means the site has a good amount of traffic.

The more Alexa rank is low (but > 0) the more the website is popular.
