PCI Compliant Web Hosting for E-Commerce

NEW! Now featuring daily automatic backup.

If you operate an e-commerce storefront or perform online merchant transactions, the Payment Card Industry (PCI) requires that your business to pass certain tests to ensure customer card information is managed safely.

In order to be PCI Compliant, an online merchant must satisfy 12 Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) requirements outlined by the PCI Security Standards Council. Several of these requirements involve scanning the Web site and server environment by Approved Scanning Vendors (ASVs).

To assist with the PCI DSS compliance process, we work directly with you and the ASV to ensure your site is successfully scanned and all reasonable compliance modifications are made to the hosting environment.

Our PCI Web hosting plans are hosted on Web servers that facilitate PCI compliance testing. Included in these plans are escalated staff resources to support your needs as you go through the PCI Compliance process.

Hosting Plan Highlights

Static IP Address
Priority PCI Support
Server Hardening
ASV Liaison
Port Scanning Support
Automatic Daily Backup

Please note: As they would break the security requirements of the hosting environment, Fantastico De Luxe and RV SiteBuilder, which are offered with our shared Web hosting plans, are not included with PCI Compliant hosting plans.
