Glossary

  • Domain name

    Domain name


    On the Internet, the domain name stores and associates many types of information with domain names; most importantly, it translates domain names (computer hostnames) to IP addresses. It also lists mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain. In providing a worldwide keyword-based redirection service, DNS is an essential component of contemporary Internet use.

    Useful for several reasons, the domain name pre-eminently makes it possible to attach easy-to-remember domain names (such as "ec2biz.com") to hard-to-remember IP addresses (such as 202.123.84.161). People take advantage of this when they recite URLs and e-mail addresses. In a subsidiary function, the domain name system makes it possible for people to assign authoritative names without needing to communicate with a central registrar each time.

  • Upload

    Upload


    Upload is to send data from a remote system, such as a HTTP, FTP server, or other similar systems.

  • E-Mail

    E-Mail


    Electronic mail (abbreviated "e-mail" or, often, "email") is a store and forward method of composing, sending, storing, and receiving messages over electronic communication systems.

    The term "e-mail" (as a noun or verb) applies both to the Internet e-mail system based on the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and to intranet systems allowing users within one organization to e-mail each other. Often these workgroup collaboration organizations may use the Internet protocols for internal e-mail service.

  • ISP

    ISP


    An Internet service provider (abbr. ISP, also called Internet access provider or IAP) is a business or organization that provides to consumers access to the Internet and related services.

    In the past, most ISPs were run by the phone companies. Now, ISPs can be started by just about any individual or group with sufficient money and expertise. In addition to Internet access via various technologies such as dial-up and DSL, they may provide a combination of services including Internet transit, domain name registration and hosting, web hosting, and colocation.

  • SSL

    SSL


    Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols which provide secure communications on the Internet for such things as web browsing, e-mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging and other data transfers. There are slight differences between SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0, but the protocol remains substantially the same. The term "TLS" as used here applies to both protocols unless clarified by context.

    “支援服務記錄”能提供高效率、管理簡易的雙向溝通環境,比一般只依靠電子郵件進行通信的模式不同。

    當顧客(查詢者)需要向店主查詢問題的時候,只要直接在“聯絡我們”的頁面輸入個人資料及問題的內容,簡單地點擊“寄出”,系統便會記錄該項查詢,並且即時向“查詢者”及管理員發出確認郵件。

    當管理員知悉及回覆查詢後,系統便會記錄往後的答覆,並同時發出電郵通知“查詢者”,而“查詢者”可點擊郵件內的連結,再次到達您網站的“聯絡頁”檢視管理員的回覆細節,“查詢者”亦可在需要時在“聯絡頁”提出“回應”。
    整個查詢過程,“查詢者”均可隨時隨地在“聯絡頁”辦理所有查詢、檢視、回應,系統亦會將每一項查詢主題的來龍去脈一一記錄,以便管理員掌握這些客戶服務中的資訊。

    支援查詢的範圍主要可針對“一般查詢”、“產品查詢”、“訂單查詢”等等,這些查詢的記錄必需是經由“聯絡頁”處理,凡經其他途徑例如電子郵件、電話處理的情況下,這項功能是沒法記錄的。

    這份指南將介紹“支援服務記錄”中的各項設定。

    “部門設定”包含以下資料:

      “中英文”的自訂部門名稱,供“查詢者”提出針對部門的選擇,亦提供“管理員”回覆時的所屬部門選擇。

General Information

  • Protect your computer from Conficker virus

    Protect your computer from Conficker virus


    The Conficker virus infects computers through exploiting a vulnerability of Microsoft Windows. Variants of the virus can also spread through file sharing and via USB drives, such as removable drives.

    The Conficker virus can disable some important security services on infected computer. It also attempts to prohibit user from accessing some security sites. As result, an infected computer may be unable to download certain security products. Most anti-virus software can detect and block the virus. If you have an updated anti-virus software with updated virus signature file on your computer, you are at a much lower risk of being infected by the Conficker virus.

    Prevention

    Perform following tasks to protect your computer from Conficker virus infection:

    1. Install anti-virus software and keep the virus signature file up-to-date.
    2. Install and enable a personal firewall.
    3. Enable and properly configure real-time detection to scan your machine for computer viruses and malicious code.
    4. Apply security patches from Microsoft Windows, in particular the security bulletin MS08-067 which was issued in October 2008.
    5. Use strong passwords for user account and file shares.
    6. Disable AutoRun feature for removable devices, if possible.
    7. Schedule a daily full system scan to check for viruses or malicious codes.

    Detection and Recovery

    Your computer may be infected if it fails connecting to websites of security vendors or downloading security updates. You should:

    1. Disconnect the infected computer from the network.
    2. Use a non-infected computer to download a malware removal tool to clean up the machine.
      http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx
      http://www.bdtools.net/how-to-remove-downadup.php
    3. Perform steps under Prevention to protect your computer.
    4. Re-connect the cleaned computer to the network.

    What is mail policy and email limits?


    Mail Limits

    There is an maximum amount of emails which can be send out per hour is 30 emails from one account or 60 emails per domain and 300 emails per day, this limit is also applied "Web Hosting Service", "Towards Mailing Lists" and "Online E-Store System". Focus Network Company reserves the violation of any of the foregoing may result in immediate deactivate or termination upon any indication of such activity without notice.

    Many of our servers have a 60 pop checks per hour limit per email address.? If you go over this you're likely to get a wrong password error message saying login incorrect. Just wait an hour and it will automatically unlock you. to prevent this from happening again make sure to disable auto checking or at least set it to something higher such as 10 minutes.

    Any mailing list larger than 2000 will require a dedicated server solution from us. Note: dividing one large list into smaller lists to get below this limit is not allowed.

    We have a maximum size of emails of 50 MByte and under, any email over 50 MByte will be automatically rejected, please use your FTP to transfer big files!

    Mailing Lists Rules

    1. Anytime you're sending a message no matter how large your e-mail list is you must throttle it.? We recommend you throttle it to at the very least sending 1 email every 6 seconds. If the mailing list software you're using does not allow you to throttle you must switch to something else. We recommend Mailman which can be found in your control panel under PLESK. If you do not throttle and you try sending let's say 1500 emails the server will try sending all 1500 in 1 second which is not possible. This will cause the server load to go very high and for the entire server to be sluggish until this process is completed. It is our job to keep the server up and running without being sluggish. Anyone who causes the servers load to go high will be suspended and the process will be terminated. If you choose not to throttle you will most likely be suspended for crashing the server without notice.

    2. Any mailing list over 100 emails is only allowed to be sent to during off-peak times to prevent high server loads. Off peak times qualify as all day Saturday and Sunday, and 1am - 8 am eastern time M-F.

    3. You are not allowed to mail to a mailing list you were given or purchased. This is spamming because they never agreed to you personally sending them mail. We do not care and how you justify it this is spam and will result in termination of the offending account.

    4. Any unsolicited e-mail being sent will result in termination of the offending account without notice. We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail.

  • Google 7.68 Terabits Per Second Cable

    Google 7.68 Terabits Per Second Cable


    Search giant finalizes plan for Pacific fiber being ran.

    The recent quakes in Taiwan highlighted a lack of redundancy in the Pacific, where fiber runs have about half the capacity found across the Atlantic. A number of companies are planning to rectify that -- including Verizon, who is working with a number of companies to run an 11,000 mile, five terabits per second (Tbps) cable from the United States (Oregon) directly to mainland China, Taiwan and South Korea.

    Google is also laying Pacific fiber as part of a consortium named Unity, formed alongside six international companies. The coalition is building a 6,200 mile, 7.68Tbps capable fiber run from Los Angeles to Chikura, located off the coast near Tokyo. Google today announced they finalized the deal on the $300 million project. According to the press release Trans-pacific bandwidth demand continues to surge:

    According to the TeleGeography Global Bandwidth Report, 2007, Trans–Pacific bandwidth demand has grown at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 63.7 percent between 2002 and 2007. It is expected to continue to grow strongly from 2008 to 2013, with total demand for capacity doubling roughly every two years. "The Unity cable system allows the members of the consortium to provide the increased capacity needed as more applications and services migrate online, giving users faster and more reliable connectivity," said Unity spokesperson Jayne Stowell.

    It's obviously a nice deal for Google, given the content operator gets access to bandwidth at build cost. NEC Corporation and Tyco Telecommunications will build the fiber run starting immediately, and it should be completed by 2010, assuming that the undersea cable cutting bogeyman leaves them alone.

    「.tel」域名的特點是讓企業將所有聯繫方法,如電話、傳真、電郵等放在「.tel」,讓網民更方便與企業聯絡,甚至直接透過網站撥打電話或發送文字短信。企業還可以用它通過即時消息(Instant Messaging)工具、博客平台甚至語音電話(VoIP)服務等低成本通信渠道來降低其成本,從而做到既省錢又能加強客戶服務。

    「.tel」域名不同其他網域名稱的部分,在於不需有自己的IP,就能直接有完整網頁的呈現,並透過創新技術使得網頁內的聯絡資訊或關鍵字得以直接儲存,並同時被大眾所查閱,在透過其他常用軟體的支援下,點選EMAIL, MSN ID, SKYPE ID 或地址, 都能呈現極佳的互動效果。

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.
