"It's not a phishing attempt, it's actually a very good usability feature that allows you to login if you already have an account, or create an account if you don't have one with the one form. Just enter your email address and a desired password, then press register/login and you will be prompted for your name, after which you will be logged in. Very easy."
That's all good and well, but how would you know you wanted to have an account? The website isn't advertising to the public. It's login page set up implies it's a private venture. Again, fine, but it doesn't inspire confidence or trust. Leading one to wonder why you're advising people to take a leap of faith and give them their email address?
The last sentence is a bit condescending. As many people have noted visitors come from many countries that would have no reason to go to their sites. These visitors are probably using a proxy service. In fact I assumed semalt was a proxy service based on traffic logs until I found this thread. There's one visitor who uses Google Chrome/Win 7 on a laptop who has browsed from Ecuador, Brazil and Italy. It's not a proxy default because someone else using the service was in Brazil using IE 10/Win 8.
Several things are going on at the same time. While it's obviously not a phish, it's still odd traffic behavior. It looks like a service set up by a private group. They also own .net and .org, same registration dates, whois proxy, etc.
