I have hosted my site in a shared environment. My hosting people disabled socket function all together. and they said that we can enable only for you if i given a written statement. I did but they asked for my control panel login details so they will run some kind of script to enable it.
Is it right for the hosting company to ask for credentials.
They have the total control so why cant they do it?
Before six months many websites in their server got hacked.
So they think it would be because of socket functions and had disabled it.
They say they can enable it for specific users who do programming using that and that is by email request.
