Hostgator shared server how to get intl

I have tried to get intl on a hostgator shared server but it seems they dont have it. Anyone else have hostgator shared server and have cakephp 3.x or 4.x working? what is the key to get the intl to work there? their support folks are not able to help.

unless you want to post for others in the future you can disregard as I switched to A2. hostgator has on their site that the shared is compatible, but they also list that they don’t have intl on the shared servers. The tech support via chat wasn’t able to help, but I dont think they really understood the problem. hostgator used to be much better, but since they sold to the big corporate it seems they have lost some of that focus.
