This post demonstrates the lifecycle of a website and how it moves through zvelo’s InActiveWeb, ProActiveWeb and ActiveWeb.
The InActiveWeb is made up of all the websites which are expired or have an unreachable status. Over time, legitimate websites may become inactive because they are no longer used, the business no longer exists, or the domain name registration simply expired. The InActiveWeb also includes sites which were flagged as malicious or phishing and have been taken down by law enforcement. This particular segment is unique because, while it’s not inherently dangerous, this is where the Malicious Cyber Actors (MCAs) carve a path into the ActiveWeb. As zvelo moves these domains to the InActiveWeb they are still tracked in case they become active again.
