What do you mean "download" the site? Are you trying to get FTP access to the actual files so that you can copy them to your local system?

At the moment, your site is not loading. If I try to ping it, I don't even get an IP address. I'm not familiar with Winsocket, but at the moment, it looks like Winsocket's server that hosts your site is down, or they don't realize they are hosting it for you. There is just nothing there. Even if the server was malfunctioning, I should be able to resolve to an IP address. I cannot. It is as though that domain doesn't even exist.

It looks like Winsocket has decent prices, but a good price is useless if your site is not accessible. I would get my money back and go with a different hosting company.

I host six sites on GoDaddy, and have been using their service for years. Their prices are comperable to Winsocket. I've never had a site go down. Their customer service is excellent. The administrative tools to manage your site are very difficult to use, and not intuitive at all, but once you learn to navigate their site, it's workable.

Do you want to know about the Walmart products ??? First you have to know about the website is scam or not ? To check whether a site is reliable or not, use the following steps :
Call, write, or email the website using the contact information provided on their website to check for legitimacy.
If you reach an automated voice messaging system, find that the number is not in service, or nobody answers during regular business hours, the website may not be legitimate.
Visit the Whois website featured in the Sources section of this article to validate and assess the company's information.
Look at content and photos on the website to make sure they are original and related to the company's products and services.
Look at the website address in the address bar of your Internet browser to verify that the website or links you have clicked on did not redirect you elsewhere.
