    In order to move your existing domain and manage it together with your "Focus Network Company" hosting account with you just need to order the "Domain Transfer Service".

    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。

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Login details are your email address and password you setup in your control panel.
    This is the perfect Webmail program, which comes with all our web hosting plans, so you can access your emails anywhere in the world.

Glossary

  • 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.

  • Internet

    Internet


    For the more general networking concept, see computer network, computer networking, and internetworking.

    Visualization of the various routes through a portion of the Internet. Internet Portal
    The Internet is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web.

    *** The above information is for reference only, Please seek independent technical advice if found necessary.

  • 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.

  • Cookie

    Cookie


    The term Cookie derives from "magic cookie", a packet of data a program receives but only uses for sending it again, possibly to its origin, unchanged. Magic cookies were already used in computing when Lou Montulli had the idea of using them in Web communications in Mar 1993.

    Purpose
    HTTP cookies are used by Web servers to differentiate users and to maintain data related to the user during navigation, possibly across multiple visits. HTTP cookies were introduced to provide a way for realizing a "shopping cart" (or "shopping basket"), a virtual device into which the user can "place" items to purchase, so that users can navigate a site where items are shown, adding or removing items from the shopping basket at any time.

    Allowing users to log in to a website is another use of cookies. Users typically log in by inserting their credentials into a login page; cookies allow the server to know that the user is already authenticated, and therefore is allowed to access services or perform operations that are restricted to logged-in users.

    Many websites also use cookies for personalization based on users' preferences. Sites that require authentication often use this feature, although it is also present on sites not requiring authentication. Personalization includes presentation and functionality. For example, the Wikipedia Web site allows authenticated users to choose the webpage skin they like best; the Google search engine allows users (even non-registered ones) to decide how many search results per page they want to see.

    Cookies are also used to track users across a website. Third-party cookies and Web bugs, explained below, also allow for tracking across multiple sites. Tracking within a site is typically done with the aim of producing usage statistics, while tracking across sites is typically used by advertising companies to produce anonymous user profiles, which are then used to target advertising (deciding which advertising image to show) based on the user profile.

    Browser Setting
    Described in " How to Enable Cookie " section.

    Cookie Expiration
    Persistent cookies have been criticized by privacy experts for not being set to expire soon enough, and thereby allowing some websites to track users and build up a profile of them over time. This aspect of cookies also compounds the issue of session hijacking, because a stolen persistent cookie can potentially be used to impersonate a user for a considerable period of time.

    Identification
    If more than one browser is used on a computer, each usually has a separate storage area for cookies. Hence cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a user account, a computer, and a Web browser. Thus, anyone who uses multiple accounts, computers, or browsers has multiple sets of cookies.

    Likewise, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users who share a computer and browser, if they do not use different user accounts.

    SWF (Flash Animations)


    SWF is a proprietary vector graphics file format produced by the Flash software from Adobe (formerly Macromedia). Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function. SWF is also sometimes used for creating animated display graphics and menus for DVD movies, and television commercials.

    We do this by attaching your system user name and an underscore("_") before all the databases and users YOU create.


    Example:
    Your added a new database(or user) and your filled in the name: mydatabase
    The Real Database Name: username_mydatabase
    (e.g. C0801001234567_mydatabase)

    * Where C0801001234567 replace your system user name.

    This applies to ONLY your database name and database username, you password stays normal.

    Database Server/Host Address
    • If your script or program is going to be accessing our database locally, meaning it is stored on your account, the server/host address will always be: localhost
    • Just like that, lowercase and one word.

    微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取


    根據BBC(英國廣播公司)報導,微軟公司的Windows Live Hotmail遭到網絡黑客入侵,超過萬個hotmail客戶資料遭到竊取,這些資料多數來自歐洲,微軟並證實遭竊取的密碼都是正確的。

    科技網誌neowin.net說,黑客除了盜取帳號密碼之外,又把盜取到的資料全數公布到網路上,超過上萬個hotmail帳戶的細節,2009年10月1日被貼上一個讓人分享密碼的網站pastebin.com。

    Neowin聲稱這些帳戶可能是被黑或是利用網路釣魚搜集而來。網路釣魚攻擊者利用發送釣魚郵件給受害者,受害者點選後,會被導向釣魚網頁,就會洩漏了個人的機密資訊給予攻擊者,如個人的信用卡號碼、密碼、帳號等。

    微軟目前表示,他們已經知悉此事,並正在積極了解及處理中。這件事透露出網路資訊安全的疑慮,若果個人資料遭到竊取,可能會有更多後續麻煩的事端。

  • Twitter

    Twitter


    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

    Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet", as it provides the functionality—via its application programming interface (API)—for other desktop and web-based applications to send and receive short text messages, often obscuring the Twitter service itself.

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.
