General encryption / decryption functions

On my Fedora Core 2 Linux dev box, I have installed mcrypt and
compiled PHP with the --with-mcrypt option. I am concerned that when
I move to another hosting enviornment mcrypt will not be supported.
In people's experiences, have hosting companies supporting PHP/MySQL
generally provided support for mcrypt?

Does anyone recommend another module for encryption/decryption that
accompanies the PHP package?

Thanks, - Dave

I donít know the answer to your question, but if you move to another
host, you can always look at VDS- virtual dedicated server, where you
can do your own compiling. VDS is getting cheap these days, and if
you need it, it would be worth the price IMHO. It maybe a lot cheaper
than spending days implementing something new IMHO.
