That server seems to respond with 404 Not Found if the User-Agent header
contains the string libwww-perl (which the link checker's User-Agent does):

$ HEAD -H "libwww-perl" http://www.all-shops-directory.com/
404 Not found
[...]

For some others it responds with 200 OK:

$ HEAD -H "User-Agent: Mozilla" http://www.all-shops-directory.com/
200 OK
[...]
$ HEAD -H "User-Agent: foo" http://www.all-shops-directory.com/
200 OK
[...]
