Glossary

  • Internet Protocol

    Internet Protocol


    Internet Protocol (IP) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard (IP)—in simpler terms, a computer address. Any participating network device—including routers, computers, time-servers, printers, Internet fax machines, and some telephones—can have their own unique address.

    An IP address can also be thought of as the equivalent of a street address or a phone number (compare: VoIP (voice over (the) internet protocol)) for a computer or other network device on the Internet. Just as each street address and phone number uniquely identifies a building or telephone, an IP address can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on a network.

    IP addresses can appear to be shared by multiple client devices either because they are part of a shared hosting web server environment or because a proxy server (e.g., an ISP or anonymizer service) acts as an intermediary agent on behalf of its customers, in which case the real originating IP addresses might be hidden from the server receiving a request. The analogy to telephone systems would be the use of predial numbers (proxy) and extensions (shared).

    IP addresses are managed and created by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The IANA generally allocates super-blocks to Regional Internet Registries, who in turn allocate smaller blocks to Internet service providers and enterprises.

    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.

  • B2B (business-to-bussiness)

    B2B (business-to-bussiness)


    Business-to-business electronic commerce (B2B) typically takes the form of automated processes between trading partners and is performed in much higher volumes than business-to-consumer (B2C) applications.

    For example, a company that makes chicken feed would sell it to a chicken farm, another company, rather than directly to consumers. An example of a B2C transaction would be a consumer buying grain-fed chickens at a grocery store.

    B2B can also encompass marketing activities between businesses, and not just the final transactions that result from marketing. B2B also is used to identify sales transactions between business. For example a company selling photocopiers would likely be a B2B sales organisation as opposed to a B2C (business to consumer) sales organisation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 客戶服務管理

    客戶服務管理


    每當顧客經瀏覽貴公司網站後,可能會對某種產品感興趣,有些顧客會即時進行訂購,亦有可能先透過查詢待了解更多相關資料後才進行訂購,現時的營商環境均講求高效率,所以對客戶的服務亦需盡快回應。

    在我們的經驗來說,一般顧客均希望產品供應商向他/她們第一時間回覆,如在辦工時間內可啟動我們提供的顧客即時查詢系統,以文字型式即時接觸客戶,但人手不能配合,亦盡量在十二小時內回應客戶的查詢,這些服務可有效增加產品的成功銷售率,並提高客戶的信心及建立良好口碑。

    以下是一些新業務需面對及安排人手處理的客戶服務重點:
    • 客戶發出的電子郵件查詢

    • 客戶發出的產品、訂單查詢

    • 對客戶發出的大數量訂購要求,預備安排額外的聯絡人手

    • 替客戶跟進訂購產品的貨運延期問題

    • 按業務及產品性質提供產品優良保證及退換細節,並於客戶服務頁展示內容

    • 客戶可能對已收貨的產品感到不滿意或商家寄出錯誤的產品,這些均需預先計劃處理方案

    • 產品在郵寄或貨運中遺失或損壞,當然出現率很低,但亦需預先計劃處理方案並展示解決資料讓顧客知述

    • 預先了解金流、信用咭公司的合約細節,以便當顧客要求取消訂單或退款、存貨不能如常供應而產生的取消訂單、少數的虛假信用咭詐騙行為等,能有效處理上述有機會發生的問題

    • 客戶或同業的投訴亦需有效地安排跟進

  • 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.


    Attention
    • As a convenience to users, we provide information about how to use certain third-party products, but we do not have technical support third-party products. we are not responsible for the functions or reliability of such products.
    • Email Forwarding or Fetch Mail may disclose your secrets.
