I have hosted my website with squarebrothers.com
They have disabled curl_exec, fsockopen, socket_create functions.
They say that these are security vulnerabilities and they have blocked.
And they suggest that they can allow access to a single user but i have to bear the responsibility if there is a security breach.
why would a hosting company disable the very important functions ?
What could be the problem with socket_create ?
I could not do any webservice request from facebook, paypal, other payment gateway and so many other webservices.
If they are enabling those functions for me then what are all the security measures i have to take?
