Memcached is a distributed, high-performance, in-memory caching system that is primarily used to speed up sites that make heavy use of databases. It can however be used to store objects of any kind. Nearly every popular CMS has a plugin or module to take advantage of memcached, and many programming languages have a memcached library, including PHP, Perl, Ruby, and Python.

How to Configure Your Liquid Web VPN

Liquid Web offers a free Virtual Private Network (VPN) user with every account. A VPN uses encryption to secure your computer’s connection to the Internet and guarantees that all of the data you’re sending and receiving to the Liquid Web network is secured from any potential prying third parties.

Be security-minded.

A VPN will secure and encrypt inherently insecure communications (such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc.) to the Liquid Web network, even while using an untrusted public network.

Who uses a VPN? People just like you.

The Professional: Whether working from a permanent home office, or simply getting a few important projects done from home, a VPN will provide secure access to files stored on your dedicated server.

Remote Developers: Do you have a fleet of remote WordPress, Joomla, PHP, Drupal, or other developers that need secure access to your hosting infrastructure? If so, a VPN is not only perfect, but should be required.

The World Traveler: Working on your top secret startup from abroad? Or perhaps uploading photos from your most recent adventure? Prevent snooping by using a VPN.

Once you’re logged into your Liquid Web Manage account, follow the steps below to create a VPN user and get connected! Continue reading “How to Configure Your Liquid Web VPN”
