Q: How to receive the lastest scanning information on a domain or IP? and How to rescan a domain or IP?


A: For web reputation data, including comprehensive security ratings, you can refresh the page or search again to get the latest data in real time. For information on websites, IPs, WHOIS, blacklists, etc. You can start a Rescan by clicking the Rescan button on the Analysis Results page. Rescanning may take a long time. We limit the use of rescan buttons and allow rescan only when data generation time was over 24 hours old.


Q: What is the user contribution value? How to improve user contribution and contribution ranking?


A: The user contribution value is generated by the number and accuracy of user ratings on the WPING.ORG system. The more reviews you contribute, the higher your user contributions get. Your redundant submissions, or submissions that are considered to be irresponsible, will affect your user contributions. User contribution rankings are your calculated contribution rankings in the WPING.ORG user community for a period of 24 hours, based on user contributions.


With different contributions , the impact of users’ rating on the final result of the WPING.ORG content will be different. In addition, we will reward users with high user contribution, such as the API functions, the query limitations, etc.
