Having problem with web host (Show IP Site)

Hello everyone,

This is Wasif. I have recently started a website that tells the visitor's IP address, location and other details. I want to add some more functions to it like ISP detection. In order to do so, I need to scrap data from other sites. The problem is that my web host uses linux based system and has disabled file_get_contents ( it is a php function).It has also disabled curl functions. These functions are required for web scrapping.

I would like to know if there is any security issue associated with these functions or is it a problem of linux hosting.

My website is :

Show IP

Please help ASAP.
Wasif K.
