.id Alphanumeric EPP Code

The new Pandi’s .id domain rule only allow alphanumeric EPP code. That is a-z, A-Z, and 0-9. Old domains EPP code may still contain symbols. That will cause domain transfer failed with error 2005: Parameter value syntax error (DomainAuthInfoType: alphanumeric). If you have this error, request new alphanumeric EPP code to registrar. Repeat domain transfer with the new EPP code.

Now sender email address displayed along with sender name. We can check the domain if the email is from official website. If you found phishing email, do not click any link and delete the email immediately.

Minimum Password Length

How long is your password? 8? Most of site today require minimum password length of 8 characters. How long it take to crack the password by brute force? The result might shock you.

It only need 5 hours to crack a 8 characters password. Minimum is just a minimum. We need more length for a more secure password. Combining lowercase, uppercase, number, symbol dramatically increase numbers of variation to guess. Each characters added to password boost crack time exponentially.

We need to choose sustainable password that crack time exceed owner’s lifetime. That is 12 characters.

Remember, over years, password weaken as computational power increase. We may need to increase minimum password length in the future.

Although Windows 10 come with native mail client, we also recommend to use Thunderbird on Windows 10. Thunderbird is more stable, lighter, and faster.
