PSPinc What's New Vol. 3

thread
PSPinc What's New Vol. 3
NEWSMAIL- EMAIL BROADCASTING SERVICE FOR FREE
Hello, this is Ken Uchikura again from Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. in Bellevue, Washington. Thank you all for being our loyal customers. I am in charge and responsible for things happening within our company … good or bad. No, all the good things are a result of our dedicated and capable staff and all of the bad things are my fault. I guess that is what my job title suggests. Though personally, I like to spend time designing and developing services. That is the reason why I sit (live is the better word) in the R&D building.

One of the things that we are working on is called NewsMAIL. This is a service that is designed to allow you to broadcast email to customers, vendors, friends and family members. You can find the website at https://www.newsmail.com and it is a paid service … until now. We are making this email broadcasting system a part of Dreamersi web hosting without any additional fees. Yes, as a Dreamersi domain/web/email hosting customer, you will soon have access to NewsMAIL at no additional charge.

This is one way to have you use our services and our way of saying thank you for being our customer. We know you have many choices when it comes to domain/web/email hosting. If you are a Parcom, YourHost, or Fazewire hosting customer, the Dreamersi domain/web/email hosting service starts at only $250 per year and is an upgrade to your current service. We will be happy to move you to Dreamersi if you are interested. Please contact our support staff at 1-800-232-3989 or 425-957-0808.

We love talking with you. Thank you for reading my newsletter. Your comments are always welcome, especially when you have something to complain about.

PSPinc What's New Vol. 2

PSPinc What's New Vol. 2
WHAT IS ML-5?

Hello, this is Ken Uchikura again from Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. We are very privileged to be chosen to take care of your Domain, Web and Email needs. We have been working very hard to make sure the services that you use are secure and stable. You probably did not feel it, but we had a massive DDoS attack to our servers lasting an entire week. We were able to reroute all DDoS traffic to the abyss and run the entire service on one side of our network without causing any service outage. This took place from January 5th - 11th this year. We are now redesigning our network to mitigate more incidents like this. I will keep you posted.

Note: What is DDoS attack?

A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.

Here is what we are working on.

When we started our Internet service back in 1996 (23 years ago), there was no email software we could use to provide reliable service with. So we created our own POP email server system called ST Mail. It was designed to run on a Windows Server. We have upgraded ST Mail and it is currently on version 4.0 supporting POP and IMAP.

2 years ago, we started to design and build a new email server based completely on a new codebase running on a Linux server. We are happy to say that we will be starting internal tests of this new email server (codename PSP ML-5) this quarter. We are hoping to start using this new server to provide Dreamersi email service by this Summer.

ST Mail, running on Windows servers, is still one of the most stable and fastest email servers in the industry. However, ML-5 is going to be even faster and more stable. Plus, ML-5 will have one more feature that no other email server has. With ML-5 you will be able to host your email server at your own facility and it will be backed up by our datacenter. You will be able to install and run your email from your office with no limitations. When the server in your office is offline, your email service will automatically be handled by PSPinc - there will be no down time.

This is one of the products we are currently creating. I will continue to write about other exciting things that we are working on. Please let me know what you think.

Twenty-five years have passed since the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995.

thread
My parent's apartment corrido... My parent's apartment corridor.
The only picture I have of this event.
This story takes place 25 years ago at 5:46am on January 17th, 1995.

I was working for a company and one of our Japanese customers called me at about 1:00pm. He told me that “There was a big earthquake in Kansai-area. You better get in contact with your parents!”. After getting off of the phone immediately, I called my parents. My mother took the phone and told me, “It was a big earthquake, I can see outside from a crack in the wall. Don’t worry, everyone is safe.”. Luckily, I was able to talk with them right after the earthquake but after that initial call, I could not call them for three days.

I heard that more than 600 people were dead in my hometown of Ashiya. After a week, I arrived at Kansai International Airport and took the train to Ashiya. On the train it was the first and last time that I heard an announcement of “final stop Ashiya Station”. There was no running water and it took four days to mobilize the Japan Self-Defense Forces (SDF). We learned a lot from this disaster, and it helped us with recent disasters in Japan to make sure there was minimum damage.

In this earthquake, more than 5000 people passed away. It has been 25 years. I pray for the victims of this disaster.

Does your Business Need Opinion Stand?

thread
image source: pixabay.com image source: pixabay.com
Have you ever wanted to give a review (bad or good) of a company on the spot? Perhaps you just finished dining at a restaurant and you’d like to recognize the top notch service you received. On the contrary, maybe you experienced long wait times and unfriendly service at a retail store or a sporting event.

These are often the moments where you feel a strong desire to give some feedback to management, but you don’t have time to wait for a manager, and once you get home, you’re too busy (or forget) to send an email with your complaints or accolades.

Good, constructive feedback for a business is often lost because that instant review hasn’t been available. Until now. PSP offers a service called Opinion Stand. It’s designed for your customers to give instant feedback about their experience at the time of service. It’s extremely simple, easy-to-use for customers and customizable to your business’ needs.

Opinion Stand comes in a physical kiosk for your brick and mortar location as well as digital formats for your online store. It’s a great way to monitor activity and view customer satisfaction trends, so you know what’s working and what needs to change.

Get all the details, options and pricing on Opinion Stand here: https://www.opinionstand.com/eng/.

HELLO FROM KEN

Thank you for being our customer. We are excited to let you know what we are working on so that we may be able to assist your business in some small way. We are sending this email to you because you are a part of a business which currently uses our services such as web hosting, web development, newsletter publishing and others. If we are not providing any services to your business and you received this email, we are very sorry and there is a link below to remove your email from this list immediately. On the other hand, if you know of someone that you feel would benefit from this email, please let us know and we would be happy to add them to our contact database.

My name is Kenichi Uchikura, President and CEO of Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. (or PSPinc). I am the person responsible for designing products and services as well as providing support and all of the background work to make everything happen. I created PSPinc back in 1987 and we have not gone public nor been bought out by any big businesses. We are a true independent software development and data center operation company.

Because we are independent, we can do things much faster than other companies. We can change direction in a matter of minutes. That means we can attempt some things so crazy that other companies may not even try them. Of course, because we try many things, we fail a lot more than others. We have never communicated that fact but I thought it may be fun to share some of our failures with you.

I hope you take this newsletter as your gateway to get to know myself and PSPinc. If you have any suggestions, questions, criticisms or occasional compliments - I would be happy to read each one of them and respond to you. Today is the very first introduction of this newsletter and I hope you will continue to provide me with a minute of your time to read it in the future. I promise I will try to entertain.

Update your Website's Copyright Date, Among Other Things

thread
image source: pixabay.com image source: pixabay.com
It’s a new year and most of us have a new set of goals. One business goal you should consider this year is giving your website an update. At the very least, make sure the copyright year is updated to 2020 on your homepage (usually in the footer).

As important as it is for your website’s content and graphics to be refreshed, it’s equally as important you keep up with the security upgrades to your servers and backend tools on programs such as WordPress. Not all content management systems have automatic updates, and your site can get infected without you knowing if you don’t keep up with security updates. Unfortunately, there is no perfect software protection and those open source programs such as WordPress are often the primary target of hackers.

When a hacker searches and finds vulnerability in old WordPress installs, they can hack the site and “inject” malicious code in the SQL Database used for WordPress. The hackers’ goal is to steal important data, so most commonly seen cyber-attacks involve the hacker redirecting links on your site to links on the hacker’s fake site. It’s hard for a business to know they’ve been cyber-attacked unless they have a trusted web hosting company or developer who will scan their data and maintain their latest WordPress security upgrades.

PSP offers a WordPress option of Dreamersi.com, our popular website building tool. With our program, every three months the latest security version of WordPress is installed, and all the major plugins are automatically updated. Even then, we advise customers to login to their content management systems and check for any security updates.

Start fresh in the New Year. Make sure you’ve updated your website’s copyright year, update outdated content and banners, as well as login and make sure you don’t have any strange activity going on without your knowledge! If you have no idea where to start, you can always contact us at PSP for help.
