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.

NOTE: Currently, we do not assist users with PCI compliance on VPS and Dedicated servers.


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 Stellar Business(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.


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.
