Most Useful Websites Of 2022- BookMark Now
We are used to visiting a few of the daily websites as per our requirements, but the websites I’m going to share here will force you to change your muscle memory and bookmark each of these Interesting Websites that are very useful on the internet.
Here are my top useful websites shortlisted after scanning the internet for more than a decade.
Top 12 Most Useful websites on the internet
Free Temporary Anonymous Email Address
There are several websites that offer free temporary anonymous email addresses. Some popular options include:
Guerrilla Mail: Allows you to quickly generate a temporary email address and receive messages in your inbox.
TempMail: A disposable email address that self-destructs after a certain period of time.
Mailinator: Allows you to receive email at any inbox you like, e.g. [anything]@mailinator.com
10minutemail: It gives you a 10-minute disposable email address that expires after 10 minutes.
ThrowAwayMail: A disposable email address that you can use to avoid spam and protect your privacy.
It’s important to note that while these services can provide temporary anonymous email addresses, they may not always be completely anonymous and your emails may still be subject to the privacy policies of the service provider.
My recommendation 10minutemail.com.
In my previous blog post about types of email, I have mentioned different types of email services.
But this one is different, these websites give you an email id for just 10 minutes.
Why do you need a 10-minute email? You may ask.
Well, there are several websites out there that require you to verify your email address, but you may not be comfortable sharing your email id, at this situation 10Minutemail comes in handy.
The 10-minute email can save lots of spam coming to your actual email id.
Make sense right?
However, If you want to have your own permanent email solution, then you must have a look at our Hosted Business Email Hosting Solutions with your own @domainname.
Verify If Your Email address Has Been Compromised
Sharing your email id to the non-trusted website may end up on the hacker list.
If you are in habit of sharing your email id everywhere, then this is the website you must include in your bookmarks.
With the large number of data breaches happening around the globe, there is a high chance that your email id may have been pwned.
To check if your email is pawned or not visit www.haveibeenpwned.com
HaveIBeenpwned maintains a database of all the website which has been compromised and check if your given email is listed in the compromised list.
If your email id is listed in the compromised database, the website will warn you about the same.
The website will also inform you about the website due to which your email was pwned.
You can then take additional security measures (like 2 step authentication from Gmail to ensure the safety of your email id).
Cool website right?
Analyse & Identify Fake Reviews
Fake Spot is for those of you who buy online products on basis of reviews of other buyers.
www.fakespot.com will scan a review of the product you are thinking to buy and warn you if it happens to find anything suspicious.
This website will tell you if the review on the product page is true are fake.
For example, I tested a Natural Fat Burner product, which was listed on amazon.in with a 4-star review rating.
At a first look, any buyer who is desperate to lose weight will be tempted to buy after reading all the reviews.
But after posting the product link in fakespot, I found this :
The review on amazon.in for this product ended up fake.
The actual rating was 2 stars.
How does fakespot analyze, if the review is an actual user or not?
They use 1000’s fake review database to identify the fake review pattern on your product.
They have profiled the reviewer patterns which helps them determine if the product reviews may have deception involved.
So, will you bookmark this website?
File & URL Scanner
This is a very handy and easy-to-use website called www.virustotal.com.
As the name suggests, it’s an online virus scanner website, you don’t need to download any antivirus tools to scan files.
If you want to scan any downloaded attachment from an email you just received, Just upload the file to this website and it will scan your file for any virus it may have.
It also helps you to scan any website you may have doubts about.
For example, I scanned www.netspaceindia.com, and this is the result.
When it comes to the file scanning option, you can upload up to 550 MB size of the file for a scan.
The result is super fast compared to any other website.
I have seen an attachment marked as safe in google mail, but was captured by virustotal.
Learn and Code
If you love programming and you are a beginner, www.sololearn.com is a must-bookmark website.
The biggest reason to bookmark this website is due to a fact that it’s completely free.
I wrote an article about How to write “Hello World” in a different programming language, I wrote this article because I know how much difficult it can be for beginners to even start coding.
But SoloLearn went many steps ahead and created an entire website for beginner programmers.
Go have a look at the entire list of their courses.
I also love the fact, that they offer all these courses on the mobile app too.
Students can download the app on android and iPhone mobile and start learning on the go without any charges.

If you are like me and like to fix things yourself then www.ifixit.com is the website for you.
In addition to selling tools and parts, they also have a list of tutorials for fixing modern days devices.
With step by step guide, The website gives you detailed instructions to fix anything.
From cars to mobile, Ifixtit.com can help you fix things.

The website took me to this page where it displayed difficulty level, the number of steps to be taken, the time required to fix it, and how many sub-sections it may have.
In short a very useful website and worth sharing.
Check If a Website is Down or Not?
Is it you or the website server? Most of the time we can not believe a server can go down but believe me I have seen the worst.
Even Facebook and Twitter can go down, and before you check your internet connection, check www.isitdownrightnow.com now
This simple website comes in handy when you want to be sure if a website you are trying to access is down only for you or everyone.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand this website.
Just enter the domain name for which you want to test it for downtime status and isitdownrightnow.com will try to access the website from a global server to check if your target domain is up or down.
Online Software Package Manager
While setting up a new Windows PC, I always have to keep a list of software I use.
So, I can install them easily.
But not anymore.
www.ninite.com is a very useful website when you want to install your favorite application in one go.
The website gives you the option to select all the applications you want to install and create your custom application setup files.
Once all applications are selected, this website will give you a downloadable exe file which you can run to install all the applications you have selected from the website.
The downloaded application will also help you update your application as and when required in the future.
I normally keep the setup file created as a (Setup) backup of all my applications.

If you love shopping on amazon, www.camelcamelcamel.com is one more website in our list that you can bookmark.
This website gives you a historical price trend of your selected product.
It is very useful to see if a product price drops at what time of the year, maybe past Christmas?

If you want you can also set up an email alert to receive notification of the price drop of your selected product.
Fact Search Engine
This one is my favorite www.wolframalpha.com is a search engine for data, no I’m not saying it is an alternative to Google, this is a different type of search engine.
This website computes data in real-time as you enter your problem.
Wolframalpha.com is not so simple search engine but can help you solve any mathematical equation and give you real data-oriented facts for your query.
Very useful website when it comes to data-driven results.
Video Sharing Website
I know, I Know, You must have guessed the website under this heading.
Yes, it is www.youtube.com.
The most used website to learn new things, explore new places and even new planets, you name it and you will have it on youtube.
Several Indian Youtubers had made their glory through youtube and this is the reason you should bookmark this website for sure.
But, in case you are bored of youtube, then I have some youtube alternatives for you.
Radio Garden - The world of radio
This one is my personal favorite – Radio Garden allows you to listen to thousands of live radios.
They also have a mobile app that can be downloaded on any mobile device.
They use a world map which you can rotate in any direction and have a small evergreen dot representing a city or town with all the radio channels there.
Tap on it to tune into the radio stations broadcasting from that city.
By adding new stations every day and updating ones that no longer work, we hope to give you a smooth international radio listening experience.
Save your favorite stations for later listening.
