  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Glossary

  • 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.

  • TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)

    TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)


    Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for mainly storing images, including photographs and line art. Originally created by the company Aldus, jointly with Microsoft, for use with PostScript printing, TIFF is a popular format for high color depth images, along with JPEG and PNG.

    TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications such as Photoshop by Adobe, GIMP, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Photo-Paint as well as Paint Shop Pro by Corel, by desktop publishing and page layout applications, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition, and other applications.

    TIFF was chosen as the native format for raster graphics in the NeXTstep operating system, and this TIFF support carried over into Mac OS X. Adobe Systems, which acquired the PageMaker publishing program from Aldus, now controls the TIFF specification, although it has not had a major update since 1992 (several technical notes have been published with minor extensions to the format).

    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.

    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.

    如果您的產品具備一些規格,而希望以一套有效的標準方式管理,令編輯產品及店面展示時更整齊美觀,則可使用這裏介紹的獨特功能。

    總括來說,“商品欄位”就是可讓您預先設定一些針對產品規格的名稱,讓編輯產品時能按需要而輸入相關資料,令產品頁面的說明與規格明顯地分隔,而且顧客瀏覽時更易更清晰了解產品。

    有輸入“商品欄位”名稱及資料的產品跟沒有輸入的一般產品無異,這方案只是提供一種更清晰易讀的展示途徑。

    每項商品欄位包含的資料:
    • “中英文”欄位名稱 - 最多125個字元

    新增商品欄位:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“商品欄位”

    3. 點擊主螢幕的“增加”按鈕

    4. 輸入“中英文”欄位名稱

    5. 完成後按“儲存”或“更新”,或按“返回”放棄並返回列表

    更改欄位名稱狀態:
    • 排序
      可選擇:“前”或“後”

    • 狀態
      點擊狀態列的“綠色”或“紅色”按鈕

    針對欄位名稱的動作:
    • 增加
      新增一筆欄位名稱

    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的欄位名稱

    • 刪除
      將該欄位名稱刪除

    透過“傳送手機短訊”您能夠將訊息以“SMS”傳送到全球任何國家的手機,而且費用相宜,令您的客戶無需特別關注電子郵箱,亦能第一時間得述您的重要訊息。

    使用“傳送手機短訊”前,您需預先購買“短訊額”,當購買後,每次由您發送短訊,或由系統發出短訊後,相應的使用量便會從您的短訊額中扣除。

    這編指南亦適用於其他與“傳送手機短訊”相關功能,例如“購物訂單”、“支援服務記錄”等。

    進入“廣告總管”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訊息中心/電子報”

    2. 點擊左選單的“傳送手機短訊”

    每項“手機短訊”包含的資料:
    請選擇以下其中一種傳送對像。
    • 發送客戶
      從下拉選單挑選欲傳送短訊的對像,若對像沒有手機號碼,則不能成功發送短訊

    • 其他人仕
      傳送短訊給一位非會員,需正確選擇對像的“國家”,再輸入手機號碼,例如“98765432”(必需輸入)

    • 發送短訊
      必需剔選,短訊才能進行傳送

    • 短訊語言
      “英文短訊”可以包含160個字元的純文字,“Unicode”、“8-bit中文短訊”可以包含69個字元。(包括英文、數字、空格、符號及斷行)

    • 發送者短稱
      發送者短稱 (SENDER ID) 必需為英文或英文加空格,最大長度為11個字元,部份網絡供應商並不支援此格式。

    • 短訊內容
      短訊內容必需為純文字,最大長度按照選擇的語言而訂,部份手機不支援中文短訊,為免出現亂碼,建議使用純英文。

    • 字元數目
      系統將會計算當前輸入“短訊內容”的字元數量,請根據選擇的“短訊語言”字元長度限制,請勿超越可接受的長度,否則訊息將被截掉多餘的字元

    發送短訊的步驟:
    1. 點擊主螢幕的“發送短訊”按鈕

    2. 選擇合適的發送對像,或輸入對像的“國家”、“手機號碼”

    3. 選擇合適的“短訊語言”

    4. 輸入合適字元長度的“短訊內容”

    5. 點擊“預覽”按鈕,或按“返回”放棄傳送動作

    6. 預覽所有資料是否無誤

    7. 點擊“發送”按鈕

    8. 如資料正確將完成傳送短訊,並從系統扣減您的“短訊額”

    查詢手機短訊的覆蓋範圍和短訊額:
    • 點擊主螢幕的“覆蓋範圍”按鈕,系統將列出當時適用的國家範圍,和每個短訊的使用額

    購買“短訊額”:
    • 點擊主螢幕的“買短訊額”按鈕,選擇欲購買的短訊額數量,檢視應付金額無誤後,點擊“確認”按鈕,並利用“PayPal (貝寶)”進行付款交易,完成後,您所購買的短訊額將於數分鐘內自動存入您的帳戶

    注意事項:
    • 每個短訊的傳送,以“短訊額”計算而非金額,請勿混淆

    • 短訊的傳送,一般都是實時送遞,但若干情況下可能受短訊閘道煩忙的影響而出現稍遲送達

    • 每次發送的短訊,如對像的手機號碼確實存在,則訊短將被視為成功傳送,不論該手機號碼是否屬對像擁有

    • 如以英文“短訊語言”發送,則不應包含任何中文字元,否則對方只會看見亂碼

    • 若未能確定對方手機是否支援“中文”,強列建議傳送英文訊息,避免對方只能看見亂碼

    • “短訊額”必需預先購買和備用,一經付款購買的“短訊額”,不設轉讓、退還或退款

    • 每個“短訊額”的價值有可能變化,以當時購買的價值為準

    “電子禮券”方案能讓您更靈活地提供促銷優惠,例如每當商店有新品推出時,可透過向會員寄贈小額的現金電子禮券,吸引會員搶購您的新品之餘,更同時享受優惠帶來的樂趣。

    而在一些特殊情況,您亦可利用“電子禮券”解決銷售過程出現的麻煩,例如:
    • 顧客已付全數貨款,但訂購產品中某些未能如期付運,而且經雙方協議,利用電子禮券替代退款

    • 顧客收到的訂購品出現瑕疵,為減少退換產品的雙方資源,可建議寄贈電子禮券作為道歉的心意

    • 因不明的原因,顧客無法經郵遞收到訂購品,為減少損失,經雙方協議後,以電子禮券替代賠償

    請注意,寄贈的“電子禮券”需要收件者透過“啟用編號”行使禮券,而且跟現金相同,並無使用限制,若需設定具備使用條件的禮券,請參考“優惠禮券管理”。

    “電子禮券”與“優惠禮券”的差別:
    • 電子禮券
      跟現金相同,不含任何使用限制,顧客可付款自購,或由管理員簽發

    • 優惠禮券
      可設定若干行使限制,並只能透過管理員簽發

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

    2. 點擊左選單的“寄發電子禮券”

    每項“寄發電子禮券”包含的資料:
    • 禮券金額
      電子禮券的面值金額,例如金額為三十圓,則數值便是“30”(必需輸入)

    • 寄給會員
      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電子禮券

    注意事項:
    • 電子禮券的面值必需視為金額,而不能設成折扣率,請勿混淆

    • 禮券啟用編號由隨機自動產生,每項禮券的啟用編號將不會重復

    • 禮券價值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

    • 禮券一經寄出,將不能修改或刪除

    • 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

    • 顧客可將持有的禮券面值自用,或轉寄全部、部份面值給親友當現金使用(轉寄後的收禮者仍需按照正常程序登記成為會員及結帳)

  • Customers Groups

    Customers Groups


    我們的“網上購物商店”系統支援多層級會員制,簡稱“客戶群組”,而且所有群組可透過單一網站集中管理。

    “客戶群組”為您的網上業務提供極具彈性的方案,除了一般零售客戶外,更可發揮創意,建立一些具特別購物折扣的“尊貴會員”或是針對B2B的“批發客戶”。

    您可為不同的“客戶群組”制定不同的購物折扣率,而在產品的售價方面,亦可設定個別的“自動計算群組售價”,或是“自訂群組售價”。

    至於些那客戶能升級至指定的群組,亦是由您全權決定,而系統暫時沒有提供自動化升級的。

    在我們為您最初設定系統時,已預設若干群組,如果您的業務不打算提供客戶升級群組,請直接忽略這些功能而不會對銷售構成影響。

    進入“客戶群組”管理:
    • 點擊主選單的“訂單處理/客戶管理”

    • 點擊左選單的“客戶群組”

    “客戶群組”包含的資料:
    • “中英文”群組名稱
      輸入簡單易理解的名稱,例如“初級尊貴會員”、“批發客戶A組”

    • 預設折扣
      輸入獲得的“0”至“99”之間的折扣率值,例如“15”即代表減百份之十五,請勿輸入符號

    • 辨認顏色
      利用“選色按鈕”挑選一種顏色,以利方便辨認

    • 群組型式
      選擇一種適合這群組的型式

    針對“客戶群組”的動作:
    • 新增群組
      新增一個群組級別,並由系統自動增加相應的售價

    • 編輯
      編輯已經建立的群組資料,並於儲存後自動更新屬“自動計算群組售價”的產品售價

    • 刪除
      刪除已經建立的群組資料及相關的產品售價

    • 資訊
      檢視群組內所屬的“會員名單”及群組資料

    注意事項:
    • 強烈建議在“初始設定”時妥善設定各客戶群組,以便有效管理

    • 系統在預設情況下,新登記會員將屬“零售客戶”,若需自訂,請到達“系統設定”的“會員設定”更改“新會員的預設群組”

    • 若要針對某一位會員升或降級,請到達“客戶管理”的“客戶資料”更改“客戶群組”,系統暫時未有提供自動化升級

    • 設定裏的“辨認顏色”只屬方便辨認會員狀態,對其他部份沒有影響

    • 設定裏的“群組型式”只屬方便辨認會員狀態及方便管理,對其他部份沒有影響

    • 群組裏其中的“電子報訂閱者”(非會員)代表某位瀏覽者只輸入電郵地址訂閱“電子報”而並非已成為會員

    • 若群組裏已有會員在內,不應刪除該群組,如需刪除,請先把相關會員調往其他的組別

  • Attribute Management

    Attribute Management


    “商品特性”能允許您在某一項產品上,預先設定可供顧客在訂購時選擇更合適的產品細節,而且有效減少收到訂單後的種種跟進工作。

    例如您正在售賣的西褲,應該具備不同的“顏色”、“腰圍”、“褲長”等,以供顧客選購,而透過“商品特性”的預先設定,您便可自定產品選擇上的各種“選項名稱”和“選項值”。

    在您的‘網上商店’銷售的產品,都可以個別地套用合適的“商品特性”以解決同款產品但具備多樣化的訂購選擇,而且每種特性選擇可設定獨特的“差價”。

    例如某一衣服產品的正常售價是每件一百圓,若顧客選擇“大碼”則需多付十圓,意味這件“大碼衣服”的每件售價將會是一百一十圓。

    要在產品中增加“商品特性”,必需預先完成上一節指南介紹的“商品特性設定”。

    進入“商品特性管理”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“商品特性管理”

    3. 或 在“產品管理”中點擊針對產品的“特性選擇”動作

    新增“商品特性”產品:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“商品特性管理”

    3. 點擊主螢幕的“增加”按鈕

    4. 選擇產品的目錄

    5. 選擇相關產品

    6. 點擊主螢幕的下方的“編輯”按鈕

    7. 剔取合適的“商品特性”和選擇其他合適的項目

    8. 完成後按“儲存”或“更新”,或按“返回”放棄並返回列表

    每項“商品特性”包含的資料:
    • “商品特性”名稱
      透過剔取“選擇方格”來決定是否套用

    • 增/減選擇
      如該項特性具有“差價”,則可透過選擇“+”(增加差價)或“–”(減少差價),如沒有設定“差價”則不需選擇

    • 選項的差價
      如該項特性具有“差價”,請輸入差價的數值,例如“10”,如沒有差價請留空

    • 排序
      針對特性在下拉選單的先後排序,如沒有刻意設定,系統將以“商品特性”名稱的筆劃來自動排列

    針對“商品特性”的動作:
    • 新增產品
      從已建立的產品裏挑選一項並套用商品特性

    • 編輯
      修改已經套用商品特性的產品資料

    • 刪除
      將該產品的商品特性刪除,此刪除動作只針對商品特性資料,不會把原有產品刪除

    注意事項:
    • 如有為產品的商品特性“設定差價”,則差價的貨幣是以您商店的“預設貨幣”為基礎

    • 若產品套用了商品特性,顧客應在放進“購物車”前選擇,而完成訂購後的訂單,雙方的訂購產品資料都會特別地註明所選的商品特性

    • 若產品套用了商品特性,在顧客選擇了並完成訂購程序後,有關產品的商品特性無法再修改

    • 產品的特性差價,會根據訂購數量反影在訂單總計裏,並連同其他應收款項一併計算

  • Database and user naming syntax for PostgreSQL and MySQL

    Database and user naming syntax for PostgreSQL and MySQL


    Since we run a shared hosting environment, we have to uniquely identify your usernames to your account ONLY.

    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.
