Hm, is that the official winrar site? I've always used http://rarlabs.com . I'm a bit suspicious :)

It is a link to the ShareIt webstore - I wouldn't have thought ShareIt would be interested if it wasn't genuine.

The links came from UniBlue (formerly LI Utilities) that produce WinTasks Pro and they seem like a good bunch. Presumably UniBlue are acting as a distributor for RARLabs these days.

Note the original email offer from UniBlue was distributed by DigitalRiver.

Thanks, carol!

I find it pays to be a bit paranoid these days, with all those phishing sites etc.

which is the win-rar.com site :Thmbsup:.

winrar/rarlabs/win-rar seems to have several of theses sites like this, and they are legit. not sure why.

The odd thing is they seem to be registered under different names in different countries ??

Using various WHOIS type services these are  the details - anyone know what is going on?

www.win-rar.com:

Registrant Name: Burak Canboy
Registrant Address: Lange Reihe 40
Registrant City: Bremen
Registrant Postal Code: 28219
Registrant Country: DE

www.rarlabs.com:

owner-name: Eugene Roshal
owner-address: Gagarina 21-15
owner-address: 454010
owner-address: Chelyabinsk
owner-address: Russia

www.winrar.com:

Sander & Associates
280-15,14/8,2F,Samsundong-1ga,
Seongbuk-gu,
Seoul 136-041
KR

I can't get the winrar.com address to work - it doesn't seem to be registered with a DNS server though the domain name is currently active.

i think it's just a slightly unusual (invisible) affiliate program.
i.e. they have allowed several different entities to be their "affiliate" in different countries - in charge of adverising and sales in that region.
