HTTP DELETE/PUT method - not implemented error

I'm using Drupal and services module (particulary JSON interface) and although I can normally implement GET and POST HTTP methods, it seems that DELETE and PUT methods give me the following error: "501 Method Not Implemented". I think that this has to do with the server configuration.

As you can see here: I *MUST* use that in order to delete/edit a Drupal node.

1) Why HTTP DELETE/PUT method is not implemented in my server configuration?
2) Can that be enabled? And if not, do you have any available workarounds on the issue I described above?

Note: If I don't have the right permissions for deleting/editing a Drupal node, I'll get a permission error so I consider that safe enough from a Drupal point of view.

Thanks a lot,

Hello Giannis,

PUT and DELETE are indeed disabled on the server, as they are also removed in many modern browsers due to a very high security risk. Unfortunately, you would not be able to use these methods within our servers. They are disabled for your protection as they can be commonly exploited to gain unauthorized access to your site. I apologize for any inconvenience.
