How to create a strong password in 2021 (Part 1)

thread
How to create a strong passw...
If you have not updated your passwords in over a year, now (at the start of 2021) would be a good time to consider changing them. Cybersecurity experts recommend passwords to be changed every 60-90 days. Cracking your password is how hackers can obtain your personal data. Securing your account starts with a strong password.

We are here to help you create a strong password in 2021 with a 2-part blog series.


Man looking at laptop

When should you change your password


National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) suggests forcing frequent password changes is counterproductive. It often leads to less secure passwords because users will take shortcuts and use common words they can remember. You should aim to update your password at least once a year, or anytime you suspect your account is compromised.

You should also change your password when:

  • You receive notices of data breach from stores you shop from, social media accounts you use, or financial institutions such as your credit card or bank.

  • You detect malware on your computer.

  • You’ve accessed your account using a public computer, as the computer could be infected with malware or keylogger.

  • Your email account receives tons of bounce-back emails and spam, it’s indicative your email account might be compromised.



Hacker on a laptop

Do not reuse passwords


You should have a different password for each account. When you change your password, do not reuse an old password because if a hacker cracks one of your old accounts, they will most definitely try the old password when attempting to crack your new accounts.

Say you had created an account with a department store many years back, you had forgotten you have that account. That particular department store had their data breached, and hackers obtained the password you used with that account. If you have reused the same password elsewhere, you are now at risk to be hacked. Even if you had changed the password slightly, often people would add a number at the end of their password when reusing a password. Since this is a common practice, hackers will try this when attempting to hack into your accounts.


Join us next time


Next time we will talk about commonly used passwords and best password practices. In the meantime, if you need help securing any of your PSPinc services please contact us. We have the best support team in the industry committed to serving our customers.

PSPinc What’s New Newsletter Vol.45 "A website is more than just a tool for sending out information"

thread
PSPinc What’s N...
Vol. 45

What do you think of when you hear the word “website?" Most people probably think of it as something like a company brochure. You also probably think of it as a tool to let people know where and when a company was established. As well as the kind of services and products the company manufactures and sells. In fact, there are many websites designed for this purpose. However, to be frank, such a website will not attract people, as there is no reason for them to visit.

A website is not a place to send out information, it is a place to conduct two-way communication with visitors. The goal is to get to know your customers and have them get to know you through communication. The goal is to build a sense of trust between you and your customers.

For this reason, a website needs to be a place to interact with website visitors. There is no such thing as a store that just hands out a company brochure to customers and asks them to leave. You need to be able to say to the customer, "Welcome. What are you looking for?”, ”Is there anything I can help you with?”, or “What are you looking for?” It is the same for customers who come to a company’s website.

It is important to create a website that starts with "Thank you for visiting our website.” We also believe you should create a website that says, "What are you looking for?” You may also need a way to collect information about your customers (e.g. guestbook, contact forms, etc.).

It is good to sell products online to customers, but it is also important to have information about where they can buy products. Let's think together about what pages will make it easier for customers to spend their time on your website.

3 Online Tools for Restaurants During the Covid-19 Pandemic

thread
3 Online Tools for Restaurants...
We may have turned the calendar to a new year, but we are still facing the same challenges that we had in 2020. Many industries have been hit hard, one of the hardest hit has been restaurants.

At PSPinc, we have developed a number of tools designed and developed to help struggling restaurants.


Customer feedback for your restaurant with Opinion Stand

Opinion Stand Customer Feedback

Price: Pay what you can

A service that allows restaurants to embed QR codes or text message codes in their posters, menus, table-tents, to-go flyers, etc. A patron simply scans or enters the code, click on an icon to rate their experience, and provide their information and additional comments on their service.

Restaurant owners can quickly evaluate their customer service, delivery experience, quality of food, and so much more! On top of that, they gain valuable customer information for future marketing and promotional efforts to encourage return visitors.

Learn More About Opinion Stand


Create a contact-less digital restaurant menu for your customers with ImaMenu

ImaMenu Contact-less Digital Restaurant Menu

Price: Free

This is a brand new service to PSPinc that provides restaurants with the power of creating an online digital restaurant menu. It is totally free-to-use and once you sign up you can quickly add menu categories and each of your dishes. For each dish you can include an image, description, allergen information, and price.

Once created, restaurants can embed a QR code, or provide a URL to their digital menu web page anywhere and everywhere. It works perfect on your Google business page, your website (we will get to that later), coupons, promotional ads, and so much more.

Sign Up For ImaMenu For Free


Have a website built for you with WebdeXpress Done For You

WebdeXpress Website Done For You

Price: $550

WebdeXpress is our easy-to-use web-builder tool that is included with all of our Dreamersi web hosting plans. It is built so you don’t have to know HTML, CSS, or JavaScript to create a fully functional website. However, not all people have the time or design sense to create a beautiful experience for their website visitors.

WebdeXpress DFY (Done For You) is an unbelievably affordable service where we do the heavy lifting for you. A customer simply chooses a pre-designed template (we have one specifically designed for restaurants), provides us with content and images, and we build the site for you.

For $550 you not only get the website, but you get 1 year of hosting, email, and an SSL certificate. For each additional year, all you pay for is the low hosting price!

We Are Here To Help!


If you are interested in any of the above services or have a specific need that you think we can help solve with software development please contact us. We have the business and technical experience to solve problems your company may be facing.

Contact us by phone at 1-800-232-3989, online at PSPinc.com, or email us directly at contact@pspinc.com.

Multilingual Online Shops Easier With ShopSite!

thread
Multilingual Online Shops Easie...
ShopSite is a service designed to quickly and easily set up an online store on your website and start selling. Given the year we have had, it is more important than ever to adapt to a digital business platform if you are able to.

Just recently ShopSite released version 14.0 sp2. This release came chock full of payment and merchandising upgrades for PayPal, among others. Something very significant with this new version is the update they have made to enhance the system for international use.

As many of you know, we pride ourselves on the software development we do not only for English websites/applications but for a number of Japanese customers both domestic and abroad. The updates they have made across the board to all versions of ShopSite (Pro, Manager, Starter) make it easier to deliver a fully functional eCommerce website regardless of the language.

Let's take a look at these international updates as outlined in their recent release notes.


State/Provinces fallback to text input (Pro, Manager, Starter)
If a shopper chooses a country that does not have a pull-down list of states/provinces to choose from, ShopSite will display a blank text input box.

UTF-8 Character encoding (Pro, Manager, Starter)
New installs now default to the UTF-8 character encoding which is the default of HTML 5. This encoding fully supports all characters. Previously ShopSite used ISO-8859-1 which only supported Latin-1 languages.


Whether you need a multilingual online shop or just an English language version, we can work with you to handle all of the technical aspects and help you start selling ASAP. As a National Hosting Partner for ShopSite, we have industry professionals on staff that can do the heavy lifting with you.

For a one-time fee of $1,962 (only a low annual hosting fee applies after year one), you can have an eCommerce website online. We want to talk to you!
