Newbie with a question

Post by Piana » Thu Feb 16, 2017 8:18 am

Hello,

There are .com - .org - .me but I am trying to find out where is .pl from if that makes sense. The email is - @testowe24.pl. I just need to know if this is not someone trying to hack my computer if I approve them. The email address is valid. Thanks.

P.S. can someone who join your membership club do harm to your site?

.pl is the Poland country top level domain. The user could be anywhere in the world.

Thanks for the response. Since this person is being anonymous even with a name, I will not give approval. Better safe than sorry. Thanks again. Nice forum.

Piana,

You are being very wise. Be nice to all, but "trust" noone you cannot verify.

Good Luck!
