URL based detection techniques analyze URL features of web pages to filter out suspicious malicious websites

URL based detection techniques analyze URL features of web pages to filter out suspicious malicious websites. Maetal 23, 24 use online learning and statistical methods to identify the lexical and host-based properties of malicious website URLs. Khonjietal 18 present a modified variant of
a website classification technique to filter phishing URLs in e-mails. Mohammad et al. 28
extract 17 features of websites (e.g. URL length, specific URL symbols, domain name, domain year, etc.) and manually set a rule for each feature to determine whether a link is malicious. Zhang et al. 44 introduced a statistical machine learning classifier to detect the phishing sites.
