PCI compliance is currently required by any website that allows customers to input their card details, accept and store their cardholder data.


PCI compliance is simple and easy within our STORM control panel, with just a single click. A member of your team with any level of technical ability can enable a Let’s Encrypt on any web site, subdomain or additional domain with just a toggle switch.

What is PCI DSS Compliance?

If you sell online and accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover credit cards, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant.

PCI compliance refers to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.

We manage all of our hosting solutions to ensure they keep up with the ever changing PCI DSS standards. PCI compliance is available within our STORM packages with just one-click, and if you’re a customer who runs an online store using a CMS such as Magento and WordPress, you’re in safe hands.

How can I make sure my hosting is PCI compliant?

To make sure that your website is fully compliant to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, we highly recommend to discuss your needs firstly with your online payment provider, we have listed a few of the most popular providers below, with links to their PCI Compliance pages.

What are the benefits of PCI?

There are a number of benefits to PCI compliance.
These include:


Increasing consumer trust is very good for business, especially as many consumers don’t feel comfortable making purchases online.


Protecting your reputation and image, which can be severely damaged by a breach of security, identity theft or card fraud.


Protecting yourself from fines, which can occur if you suffer an Account Data Compromise. These can often involve covering the cost of replacing cards, paying for on-going monitoring and flat fines from the regulator.


Protecting against online threats, with regular scans and monitoring keeping on top of your web security.
