  • Search Engine

    Search Engine


    A search engine is an information retrieval system designed to help find information stored on a computer system, such as on the World Wide Web, inside a corporate or proprietary network, or in a personal computer. The search engine allows one to ask for content meeting specific criteria (typically those containing a given word or phrase) and retrieves a list of items that match those criteria. This list is often sorted with respect to some measure of relevance of the results. Search engines use regularly updated indexes to operate quickly and efficiently.

  • B2C (Business-to-consumer)

    B2C (Business-to-consumer)


    B2C (Business-to-consumer), also business-to-customer, describes activities of commercial organizations serving the end consumer with products and/or services.

    The two main challenges faced by B2C e-commerce are building traffic and sustaining customer loyalty. Due to the winner-take-all nature of the B2C structure, many smaller firms find it difficult to enter a market and remain competitive.

    In addition, online shoppers are very price-sensitive and are easily lured away, so acquiring and keeping new customers is difficult.

  • SPAM

    SPAM


    Spamming is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, which are universally undesired. While the most widely recognized form of spam is email spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, mobile phone messaging spam, internet forum spam and junk fax transmissions.

    Spamming is economically viable because advertisers have no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists, and it is difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings. Because the barrier to entry is so low, spammers are numerous, and the volume of unsolicited mail has become very high. The costs, such as lost productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and by Internet service providers, which have been forced to add extra capacity to cope with the deluge. Spamming is widely reviled, and has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.

  • 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.

  • BMP (Bit Mapped)

    BMP (Bit Mapped)


    The BMP (bit mapped) format is used internally in the Microsoft Windows operating system to handle graphics images. These files are typically not compressed resulting in large files.

    The main advantage of BMP files is their wide acceptance, simplicity, and use in Windows programs. However, they may pose problems for users of other operating systems. Commonly, BMP files are used for Microsoft's Paint program. Since most BMP files are uncompressed, and BMP's RLE compression has serious limits[citation needed], the large size of BMP files makes them unsuitable for file transfer. However, Bit Map images are suitable for background images and wallpapers. This is especially true for screen shots. In addition, images from scanners are usually stored in BMP files.

  • 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.

  • 如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足

    如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足


    從世衛在2009年4月24號發出的第一個人類豬流感個案開始,至今已有76個國家和超過3萬感染個案而豬流感病毒變種的問題也成為了全球關注的話題。其實在電腦的世界,惡性攻擊病毒每天在不斷的增加、更新和改變,而企業往往就因為病毒入侵而造成數據丟失和摧毀的受害者。如何防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,是企業I.T.部門經常要面對的挑戰。

    企業單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠

    根據美國FBI 2005的研究指出,約84%的公司會受到惡性病毒的攻擊。另外,美國網絡安全協會(Cyber Secure Institute) 的報告指出,企業為了清除各項病毒的花費高達90億美元!無論您為電腦做再好的隔離措施,例如擁有最新的防病毒軟件和頻密的病毒掃描,病毒也可以找到辦法入侵電腦系統然後摧毀公司重要的檔案,例如客戶清單、合約和訂單等等。公司因為數據丟失和內部電腦系統故障影響而到商譽也絕非金錢能隬補。所以,企業要防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠。

    設立災難性回復方案才能治本

    其實要解決以上問題就要從根本著手,第一步就是要為企業電腦系統設立有效和快速的災難復原方案 (Disaster Recovery Solution),而當中最重要的一環便是為每台電腦作鏡像備份(Image Backup),這樣,當遇到病毒入侵造成數據丟失,企業便可快速地把事先備份好電腦鏡像直接恢復到電腦上,把受到感染或是有故障的電腦復原到正常狀態,確保企業持續運作,儲存於電腦內的業務數據亦能得以保存。

    有資深企業備份經驗的Ahsay 銷售部經理候健生指出:「如何為企業設立有效和快速的災難復原方案是一個很大的課題,大小企業都需要正視。但對中小企來說,由於資源所限,加上公司內未必有專門負責I.T.方面的人員,所以很多中小企都未有實行。其實坊間都有不少能夠提供鏡像備份(Image Backup)的備份軟件,可以滿足基本備份需要。但這些軟件只能夠作本地備份,一旦公司的電腦受到病毒侵襲,用作儲存備份的電腦或伺服器亦可能已經中毒,導致已備份的鏡像無法還原而不能做到災難復原。所以企業應選擇具備異地鏡像備份的備份軟件,才能確保災難復原能發揮功效,因為就算本地公司內所有電腦和伺服器都已經中毒,儲存於異地的鏡像備份數據亦不會受到感染,企業便可快速地把電腦鏡像直接從異地恢復到電腦上,達至災難復原的目的。而Ahsay Backup Software 是市場上少數可以做到異地鏡像備份的企業備份方案。」

    關於Ahsay

    Ahsay Systems Corporation (亞勢系統有限公司) 建基於香港,目前在世界各地已擁有超過2, 900個服務合作夥伴和經銷商,並有超過90萬用戶安裝了Ahsay Backup Software備份軟件。

  • Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1

    Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1


    Microsoft is advising its customers to stop using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm in cryptographic applications such as SSL/TLS encryption and code signing.

    In a security advisory issued by the company, Microsoft said that it would stop recognising certificates using the algorithm after January 1, 2016. After this date, certificate authorities (CAs) that issue certificates under the Windows Root Certificate Program will only be able to issue SHA-2 certificates.

    According to Microsoft, SHA-1 is used in 98 percent of all certificates issued worldwide. However, it also claims that since 2005 researchers have discovered collision attacks against the algorithm that mean it no longer meets its security standards. Although the announcement to drop SHA-1 comes today, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has been advising government agencies to move to SHA-2 since December 2011.

    The ASD also has a slightly different opinion of when the collision attacks were first known, stating that "theoretically impressive attacks" against SHA-1 were known since 2004, but that they were not practical to implement.

    ASD has already removed the "weakened but not broken" SHA-1 algorithm from use in its Information Security Manual.

    The US National Institute of Standards and Technology, which published the algorithm, also stated in September 2012 that US federal agencies should stop using SHA-1.

  • How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module

    How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module


    This module uses a rule-based rewriting engine (based on a regular-expression parser) to rewrite requested URLs on the fly. It supports an unlimited number of rules and an unlimited number of attached rule conditions for each rule, to provide a really flexible and powerful URL manipulation mechanism. The URL manipulations can depend on various tests, of server variables, environment variables, HTTP headers, or time stamps. Even external database lookups in various formats can be used to achieve highly granular URL matching.

    In order to enable Mod_Rewrite for your site you should create a text file called .htacccess in the directory where you wish the rewrite rules to apply.

    The first line of this text file should be:
    RewriteEngine On

    After that you can place your rewrite rules. Here are some examples for Joomla's SEF option:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|.htm|.php|.html|/[^.]*)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(content/|component/) index.php

    Many applications come with ready to use rewrite rules that can be found in a file called htaccess.txt.

    Upload this file into the root of your domain(e.g. httpdocs). The changes take effect immediately.

Email Tutorial

  • Are you able to receive emails but not send?

    Are you able to receive emails but not send?


    If you can receive mail but aren't able to send this means one thing.....

    There are number of things causing this. Unless you've received an announcement from us that mail isn't working properly at the time you're having difficulty.

    Chances are it is some internet provider is blocking you from using anyone's incoming mail servers but their own. Many major ISP's are blocking incoming emails.

    The reason they do this is to prevent you from using their internet connection for spamming purposes.

    You will still be able to send emails, but only by using your ISP'S outgoing mail server.
    Every ISP's outgoing mail address is different, but for the most part they will be mail.yourispname.com
    For example, if you had hosting with AOL.com, their outgoing mail server would look like this: mail.aol.com.

    If mail.yourisp.com does not work and you are still unable to send emails, you will need to call your internet service provider to find out what their outgoing mail server is.

  • Setup fetch email using Netvigator

    Setup fetch email using Netvigator


    Why Should I Use Fetch Mail Instead of an Email Forwarder?

    We are committed to improving the stability of services.

    Unfortunately, it is very common for mail forwarding to cause blacklisting with many large email providers. This most commonly occurs when large amounts of mail are forwarded and then marked as spam after it has been received in the end user's inbox. This results in our server's sending reputation being penalized since it was the last server to send the mail. Ultimately, our server will be blacklisted with the email provider and it will affect all of other users on the same server.

    A solution to this is to disabled mail forwarding altogether. change to using mail fetcher, you can access mail in a other system without having the mail routed through that system's server. This way, you can mark a message as spam without it affecting our email server's reputation.

    The instructions below provide steps on how to fetch mail from our server so you can access them via Netvigator Mail.

    Once Mail Fetcher is set up, Netvigator will check those accounts on a regular basis, and new mail will appear automatically in Netvigator mail.

    • Log into your Netvigator account. https://www.netvigator.com/chi/email.php
    • Click Preferences and locate the Accounts section.
    • Click Add External Account.
    • Enter the full email address in the Email address field.
    • Select POP3 in the Account type field.
    • Enter the full email address in the Username of Account field.
    • Enter mail.yourdomain.com in the Email Server field. (Enter your domain instead of "yourdomain.com".)
    • In the Password field, enter the password for the email address you provided.
    • No need to enable Advanced Settings.
    • Click Save.

  • Eudora 6 For PC Email Tutorial

    Eudora 6 For PC Email Tutorial


    In this tutorial we will learn how to set up Eudora 6 for PC as your email client.

    What you will Need:

    • A valid email account, if you haven't created an email account yet please log into your Control Panel and set up an email account.
    • An email client. This tutorial uses Eudora, which is available for PC and MAC.


    Eudora is an email package that is free to download from http://www.eudora.com Eudora has three modes -- Sponsored, Paid, and Light. Sponsored mode gives you the full-featured product, but displays ads on part of your screen. The ads are relatively unobtrusive. Paid mode gives you the same thing as Sponsored mode, without the advertisements, but you need to pay for and register it. Light mode is Eudora without the bells and whistles, but also without advertisements.

    When you install Eudora it will be in Sponsored mode by default. You can change the mode by choosing 'Payment & Registration' from the help menu.

    These instructions assume that you are using Eudora 6.x in Sponsored mode for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. The configuration might be slightly different for other versions of Eudora.

    我們開發的“網上商店”系統,具備獨特的“優惠禮券”方案,讓您的線上商店跟“實體商店”一樣,給與顧客特別的優惠,令顧客買得開心,從而幫助線上業務達致更佳銷售業績。

    “優惠禮券”的理念十分簡單,您只要在建立時,設定禮券的價值金額,如有需要,更可制定使用的規章,系統便會隨機產生禮券的“啟用編號”。

    當完成禮券的創立後,您便可向所有會員、指定的“客戶群組”、或指定的某一會員透過電子郵件寄發優惠禮券,當對方收到郵件後,便能透過郵件所述的“啟用禮券超連結”到達您的線上商店購物並使用禮券價值扣減應繳款項,或於正常購物程序在結帳時輸入“啟用編號”。

    “優惠禮券”的使用可謂極之靈活,例如“產品促銷”、“特別節日優惠”、“特殊會員優惠”等。

    您甚至可以在某些場合下,透過一般印刷品,例如雜誌廣告、傳單,說明持有“啟用編號”購買產品可享優待。

    進入“優惠禮券管理”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“電子禮券/優惠禮券”

    2. 點擊左選單的“優惠禮券管理”

    每項“優惠禮券”包含的資料:
    • 優惠禮券金額
      禮券的價值(必需輸入),如屬金額請直接輸入數值,例如“二十圓”,數值便是“20”,如屬折扣率請輸入欲扣減的百份比,例如七五折,數值便是“25%”

    • 啟用編號
      由系統隨機產生的獨立編碼,例如“2a886c5”

    • 優惠禮券的最低購物額
      請輸入最少購物金額才可啟用禮券,例如需購物滿三千圓,數值便是“3000”,如無指定這限制則輸入“0”

    • 優惠禮券的可用次數
      同一禮券的可啟用次數,包括相同顧客或不同顧客,例如指定“10”,則這禮券在任何情況下被啟用十次即自動失效,(建議“無限”次)。

    • 每位客戶可用次數
      同一顧客啟用該禮券的有效次數,例如指定“1”,則顧客只能使用一次,實際可用次數仍會受“優惠禮券的可用次數”影響

    • 生效開始日期
      指定禮券有效的開始日期

    • 生效結束日期
      指定禮券有效的結束日期

    • 可供選購的目錄範圍
      指定禮券適用的產品目錄,若顧客的購物名車其中一項產品屬指定範圍內,仍可使用該禮券,但為避免顧客於使用禮券時出現障礙引致不滿,建議所有產品均適合使用禮券

    • 優惠禮券主題
      “中英文”的禮券主題,例如“春季50圓優惠禮券”

    • 優惠禮券說明
      “中英文”的禮券說明,請將“禮券介紹”及上述“使用限制”以文字型式向顧客詳細說明

    針對“優惠禮券”的動作:
    • 寄優惠禮券
      向所有會員、指定的“客戶群組”、或指定的某一會員透過電子郵件寄發優惠禮券

    • 編輯
      編輯修改已經建立的優惠禮券內容

    • 刪除
      將已建立的禮券刪除

    • 優惠禮券使用報告
      顯示有關禮券的客戶使用狀況及資訊

    • 資訊
      顯示有關禮券的內容規則及資訊

    針對“優惠禮券”的浮動按鈕:
    • 優惠禮券編輯
      編輯修改已經建立的優惠禮券內容

    • 寄送優惠禮券給客戶
      向所有會員、指定的“客戶群組”、或指定的某一會員透過電子郵件寄發優惠禮券

    注意事項:

    • 禮券的價值若屬金額,則金額的貨幣將根據您商店的“預設貨幣”為基礎

    • 禮券的啟用,必需通過收禮者電郵所附的“啟用編號”,除此以外,並無其他途徑啟用電子禮券

    • 建立後的禮券,若已被顧客使用過,在一般情況下不建議刪除,否則影響日後翻查訂單的資料準確性

    • 若顧客將禮券啟用後,在付款結帳後仍有禮券餘值,那餘值將儲存於顧客帳戶裏供下次購物時再使用

    • 建議禮券的使用規則不應限制過嚴,否則若顧客未有充份了解下使用,將導致無法順利結帳而打消購物的念頭,例如設定禮券的使用“不限購物金額”、“所有產品均適用禮券”等,有助顧客順利購物及享用禮券,從而令顧客感到在您商店購物的樂趣

    • 建立完成的禮券,更可自動送贈給新登記的會員,以助快速吸納更多會員,若需設定,可到達“系統設定”>“新會員優待”>“優惠禮券”進行,但請注意,切勿同時提供多於一種的優待新會員方案

  • 業務管理架構

    業務管理架構


    在貴公司採用我們的系統過程裏,除了初次完善的設定後,往後的管理可能會十分繁重,由於在互聯網上潛在著巨大商機和不分國別界限,所以因由開業初期的零碎訂單及客戶查詢,以至貴公司網站及業務續漸被更多人認識,這時會出現大量的客戶查詢及訂單,所以貴公司必須及早作好安排,提高業務效率。

    因為每間公司的業務均不盡相同,我們實難以一一說明,但以下是一些根據現時我們的客戶提供及經整理的重點安排:
    • 新產品的輸入工作

    • 售清產品的刪除或補貨工作(系統對於存量會有提示)

    • 產品的售價、存量、內容的更新

    • 經常校對輸入了的資料並試驗實際模擬交易,找出錯誤的地方並加以修正

    • 整個網站內容訊息定時更新,會讓顧客保持新鮮感

    • 不斷增加網站文字內容,可令各搜尋引擎收集更多資訊,有利提高知名度

    • 定時提供促銷活動,如節日特價品,送贈小額電子禮券吸引舊會員消費

    • 為日常訂單收取的信用咭營業金額記錄及整理

    • 定期觀察我們提供的網站報告,比較瀏覽量高低的地區作出相應的宣傳安排

    • 如網上營商是貴公司的重點業務,需多利用各動宣傳媒體,例如於“Yahoo”、“Google”放置廣告,把產品張貼到知名的拍賣網如“EBay.com”、“雅虎拍賣網”等

    Please be aware we does not participate in any management and not assume responsibility and support for third party providers.

    在線上商店設立“討論區”,能有效幫助提升瀏覽量,進而令產品銷售業績達至更高峰。

    專屬的“討論區”與一般外部連接的常見討論區具有很大的差別,因專屬“討論區”能跟商店風格完全配合,而且商店內的會員可直接參與討論,無需再次註冊,所以無論討論的會員與管理員均可輕鬆操作。

    由於專屬“討論區”屬實時互動,所有在線的會員都能根據自己的喜好,參與不同話題的討論,會員之間亦可表達到產品的用後感,這樣更能節省會員發出向商店查詢的數目。

    若您希望為會員提供理想的討論環境,那必需事先花點心思,開設多種不同話題的討論分區,並且多抽時間參與討論,這將能讓會員感到商店的熱誠服務。

    由於“討論區”屬實時運作,所有會員發表的訊息將直接張貼顯示,但有些情況例如會員張貼負面訊息、違法內容、不可接受的廣告等,管理員便應盡快修改文章,甚或刪除之避免帶來負面影響。

    進入“討論區總管”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訊息中心/電子報”

    2. 點擊左選單的“討論區總管”

    每個討論分區包含的資料:
    • 主題
      討論分區的主題名稱,最長32個字元,例如“購物心得分享”(必需輸入)

    • 說明簡介
      討論分區的簡介,最長256個字元,例如“請發表您對本店產品的使用心得”(按需要輸入)

    • 狀態
      討論分區在商店的展示狀態,請選擇“顯示”或“不顯示”

    • 接受張貼狀態
      討論分區在商店的文章發表狀態,請選擇“開放張貼”或“禁止張貼”

    • 排序
      若多於一個討論分區,請安排各分區的上下排序,數字越細代表排列越高

    針對“討論分區”的動作:
    • 開放狀態
      點擊狀態列的“綠色”或“紅色”按鈕

    • 編輯
      修改已經增加的討論分區資料

    • 刪除
      將該討論分區和當中的所有文章資料刪除

    • 進入
      管理討論分區的文章

    管理討論分區的文章:
    1. 在討論分區點擊“進入”或“討論區主題”

    2. 進入後,點擊文章的“主題”或“編輯”

    3. 進入後,點擊希望管理的主題文章,或該主題的回覆文章

    4. 點擊“編輯”進行修改,或點擊“刪除”把文章刪除

    如何建立超級討論區會員(管理員):
    1. 在商店頁面,使用您的管理員專用的電郵地址,以正常的會員參加程序,建立一個會員帳號

    2. 利用這個帳號登入商店,並前往討論區發表新文章,或進行回覆

    3. 發表後的文章,在文章發表人的稱名前,將顯示標緻為“管理員”

    注意事項:
    • “討論區”的內容和主題,只屬互動性質的額外資訊,不會構成對產品銷售和其他功能的影響

    • 所有發表的文章的動作,必需由已登記的會員進行,不能透過匿名方式張貼文章

    • “討論區”必需建立完成,方能讓會員進行討論

    • 討論區沒有限制主題和文章的數量,但當中的資料將佔據資料庫和您的可用硬碟空間,所以應定時刪除過舊的文章以節省儲存空間

    • 管理員不應發表或回覆違法、欺詐、中傷、誹謗、淫褻、色情、褻瀆、恐嚇、污穢、討厭、令人反感或其他不良或過分的資訊

    • 我們不會對討論區的文章內容提供支援或維護服務,當中包含的文章與我們無關,若文章內容導致任何法律責任或損失,均由業務擁有者承擔
