Information on Security Enhancements to SpinNet User Home Page Service

Dear SpinNet Customers,

Thank you very much for using SpinNet.

In order to enhance the security of "SpinNet User Home Page Service", we will start providing SFTP from today. This allows for encrypted uploading to the homepage server.

In addition, "File Transfer by FTP" and "MYHOME.web" will be terminated as follows.We would like to ask all FTP users to switch to SFTP as soon as possible.

We would appreciate your understanding and cooperation

For further details, please refer to the following:


1. About SFTP

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a network protocol used for file transfers. It is more secure than FTP by encrypting the data to be transferred.

2. Required response for service users

Please prepare software that supports SFTP or change the settings of your current software.

SpinNet has also prepared a manual for setting up FileZilla for SFTP, which we hope you will find useful. If you use other software, please check the documentation for that software based on the following settings.

3. Notice of FTP Termination

The FTP is expected to end after June 30, 2022.

We will announce the end date of the FTP service on the SpinNet homepage, but we would appreciate it if you could support SFTP as soon as possible.

4. Termination of MYHOME.web

MYHOME.web will terminate its service on July 31, 2022 (Sun.) due to the aging of the facilities it provides.

After the termination of the service, you will no longer be able to add or edit greeting cards and albums, but this will not affect the viewing of greeting cards and albums that have already been published.
