How to establish a connection to remote scripts/servers, RSS feeds?
Due to security reasons, the outgoing connections for all customer accounts are disabled by default. This means your scripts, hosted on our servers, will not be able to communicate with other servers.
Enabling connection to external/remote servers is possible only for paid hosting plan customers using the Control Panel -> Hosting Tools -> Website Manager -> Hosting Settings -> “Firewall Options” and finally clicking on the “Enable” button. This will enable the outbound connections on ports 80, 443 and 3306.
