We offer a free memcached instance on all shared, semi-dedicated, and reseller hosting plans. You can enable memcached in cPanel under the 'Memcached' interface. To access this:

  1. Login to cPanel for your account using (replace with your accounts primary domain name)

  2. Once you've logged in to cPanel use the search tool to look for 'Memcached'

  3. Click the 'Memcached' icon

  4. On the 'Memcache' configuration page click 'Start Memcached'

  5. You will be shown the path to your UNIX socket memcached instance, which will be: /home/username/.hostdata/memcached.sock

  6. Your accounts memcached instance is now running. You will provide your site/software the memcached path and it should automatically connect to the UNIX socket

If you have any issues starting memcached or configuring your site/software to utilize the socket please contact our support team.
