PCI Compliance - FAQ

What is PCI compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

You are required to be PCI-compliant if you would like to process debit, credit, and prepaid cards branded with one of the five card association logos that participate in the PCI SSC – American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, and Visa International.


Where can I find the PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)?

The Standard can be found on the PCI SSC's Website:
https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/pci_dss.shtml


Are your servers PCI-compliant?


We use the HackerGuardian scanner provided by Comodo - http://www.hackerguardian.com.
According to the results of the latest HackerGuardian check, our Business SSD servers are PCI-compliant. This compliance level is considered to be sufficient for online stores and similar small e-commerce websites.

PCI compliance standards for serious enterprises (banks, merchant providers, etc.) include a number of technical aspects that *cannot be fulfilled* on shared servers. In order to choose a server that has eligible PCI-compliant environment, you need to provide us with PCI DSS requirements by submitting a ticket to Hosting - VPS and Dedicated servers department.


How often is PCI compliance scan made?

PCI compliance requirements may change as new versions of software are released, or new security issues are detected.
Our technical team runs PCI compliance scan of our servers on a regular basis.


What if I receive errors about my hosting not being PCI-compliant?

In this case, submit a ticket to Hosting - Support department here attaching the results of the scan and we will check the matter for you.
