You will probably need to upgrade to their Ultra Hosting Plan which uses PHP 5.2.8.  You will have to call them in any case if there is no 'upgrade' in your control panel.

mostly if your being hosted, then they will have the most stable version for there system, and wouldn't recommend updating unless they have to, as it may cause more problems to upgrade.

I see, that's what I feared.

Is there any alternative to the json_decode function?  I really want to use it.

I'm assuming doteasy.com is a shared hosting environment? If so then you wont have any control over the php version installed. You could email their support about it but I would say they wouldn't modify their php version for one user.

You can check what php version is in use my using phpinfo(); in your code.

eg create a file with only this code
<?php
phpinfo();
?>
And then hit it.

You can use your own php.ini file to get around the issue but you will most likely need to contact the support about it.

This might help a bit. http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-specify-a-custom-php.ini-for-a-website-apache2-with-mod_php
