The web hosting website: "www.HostHurray.com" should not be trusted. I do not recommend purchasing anything from this website because you may risk your credit card and personal information being stolen. What makes this website suspicious is that it does not provide a secure connection (SSL) from your computer to their website and their domain name is only registered for one year.
Please continue reading below.
The Website: www.HostHurray.com
This website doesn't provide a secure connection from your computer to their website, which is used to protect your sensitive information that is submitted to them, by encrypting it. This information includes your name, address, telephone, user name and password. All e-commerce website must provide this type of protection.
A website with a secure connection, internet address starts with 'https://' instead of the unsecure default 'http://'.
The secure connection internet address for HostHurray: https://www.HostHurray.com, doesn't work. If you go to https://www.HostHurray.com, you will receive an SSL certificate error.
This error means there is no protection and the information submitted to this website can be viewed by someone while it is being transmitted across the internet.
Also, the website is only registered for one year. Legitimate websites will always register your domain name for at least 4 years.

Scammers usually register their fake website domain names for one year, which is the minimum registration period; because they know that sooner or later their fake websites will be discovered.
Also, this website does not use its own payment processor to collect payments; instead it uses a third party payment processor. Scammers usually use these third party payment processors to collect their loot.
We do not recommend purchasing any services from the website www.HostHurray.com.
