Signs Of A Reliable Web Site
(Page 1 of 3 )
Students and professionals alike are turning to the Internet to perform research for work and school, handle investments , etc..In recent years, many people have begun to believe that everything contained in the Internet is fact, but this is obviously not so. The Internet is an amazingly broad resource for research, but unless a user knows how to look for signs of reliability, the information gathered during Internet research may not be accurate or of the highest quality available.
Reliability can be judged at a high level by investigating the domain name. There are no restrictions on who may apply for a .com, .net, or .org domain. However, the .edu and .gov domains are restricted to government agencies and educational institutions. Therefore, information gathered from these sites can be considered more reliable that that obtained from other domains. However, it is important to note that many educational institutions allow students to publish pages under the .edu domain and that information may not be vetted by the institution.
