What are the specific UDP restrictions for shared hosting?

Subject says it all. I'm apparently running into some kind of UDP firewall interference on my site that won't let me run a socket connection through UDP to obtain a response from another server.

Anyone know of any restrictions placed on the protocol?

Hi @Codewow. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! There isn't a restriction on the protocol in general, but ports are highly restricted on Shared Hosting plans. That might be what you're running into. Unfortunately, for security purposes, I wouldn't be able to provide you with a full list of what ports are open or closed. If you have a VPS or Dedicated Server, the options are greatly increased. Hope that helps.
