Argus Panoptes (All-seeing; Ancient Greek: Ἄργος Πανόπτης) or Argos (Ancient Greek: Ἄργος) is a many-eyed giant in Greek mythology.

Argos the son of Agenor and Gaia whose name "Panoptes" meant "the all-seeing one". Argos was a giant who had a hundred eyes around his head, and even in his deepest sleep could only close about half of them, so it was impossible to deceive his vigilance.

He was a servant of Hera and one of the tasks that were given to him was to slay the fearsome monster Echidna, wife of Typhon, which he successfully completed. Hera gave him task to guard Io, a nymph that Zeus was involved with. Zeus, in his efforts to approach Io, told Hermes to disguise himself as a shepherd and make Argus go to sleep. As soon as he fell asleep, Hermes killed him with a stone.

In addition to the symbolism of loyalty and vigilance, the legend remains timeless and warns that the concept of “zero risk” does not exist and that any security setting can be improved.

Currently, the site is in beta, and lacks some functionality. You can browse different domains and obtain information about each domain. I have extracted more than 65 million unique domains from billions of Common Crawl links. I did an analysis for each individual domain and made sure the data is presented in a friendly way. I am constantly adding new functionalities and supplementing the page, so it can happen that something does not work.
