FAQ: Magento Hosting
PCI-compliant Magento hosting refers to hosting that meets the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for the storing, processing, and transmitting credit card information. So, in a nutshell, PCI-compliant Magento hosting helps protect you and your customers.
PCI compliance is especially important for Magento sites since Magento is an e-commerce platform that processes sensitive data such as credit card information. Depending on your location, failure to show PCI compliance – especially when a breach occurs – can result in hefty fines, legal consequences, and reputational damage.
For UK customers: It is important to note that while PCI compliance may not be enshrined in UK law, it is a requirement by the five major card issuers that form the PCI Security Standards Council.
As a PCI-compliant hosting provider, Storm makes it easier to help protect the safety of your customer data. Some of these measures include:
- All our servers are set up according to stringent PCI DSS standards before deployment
- Quarterly PCI-compliance scans on all our server products, optionally available for individual websites too. These scans reveal any security issues which might prevent PCI compliance. If you have a fully-managed server with Storm, we’ll automatically address potential issues to ensure you remain compliant.
- We ensure robust network security at multiple levels using cutting-edge hardware and software firewalls as well as other network technology.
- We perform regular security testing on our systems and servers.
Storm Internet can also assist with full PCI DSS certification of your site or server.
Storm Internet provides options for all three types of SSL certificate to encrypt data sent over the internet and promote PCI DSS compliance. Here’s a quick overview of the different SSL types:
DV (Domain Validated) SSL certificates
DV SSL certificates are the most basic type of SSL certificate. They are a quick and easy way to secure your website with encryption since they only require domain-level validation. DV certificates are recommended for personal websites or blogs, or small businesses that do not require a high level of trust from their customers.
OV (Organization Validated) SSL certificates
These SSL certificates provide a higher level of validation than DV certificates. They require a more rigorous validation process that includes verifying the domain name registration and validating the organisation behind the website. OV certificates are recommended for businesses that need to establish trust with their customers, such as e-commerce sites. These SSL certificates display the verified organisation name in the certificate details.
EV (Extended Validation) SSL certificates
EV SSLs provide the highest level of validation and assurance. They require the most rigorous validation process, including verifying the domain name registration, the legal existence, and operational presence of the organisation. EV certificates display the verified organisation name in the browser address bar, making it clear to customers that the website is legitimate and trustworthy. EV certificates are recommended for businesses that deal with sensitive information or high-value transactions, such as financial institutions or government agencies.
We’ve got a Magento hosting package for everyone – from business owners just starting out to high-performance eCommerce sites.
With StormCloud Magento you get your own cloud server to run one or more Magento sites. Best of all, it’s managed by a team of six engineers, which eliminates any technical requirements.
With a Magento cloud server from Storm you can install all the software components needed to take your Magento site to the next level. You can also add more resources to compensate for increased storage needs and even higher performance during peak traffic times. This ensures a consistent experience for your visitors whatever the time of day.
Magento Dedicated Server
Storm’s Magento Dedicated Server shares many of the benefits of StormCloud Magento, but adds privacy to the list. Where your public cloud server shares a cloud with other public cloud tenants, a dedicated server is a single physical server that’s yours, and yours alone. Added privacy ensures an additional security measure to protect information and visitors, and can be a valuable part of your journey to full PCI DSS certification.
Magento Private Cloud
Storm Internet’s Magento Private Cloud has all the benefits of cloud servers and dedicated servers, and none of the drawbacks. A private cloud is cloud infrastructure where you are the only tenant. This means you get the benefit of dedicated resources as well as the added security that complete privacy delivers.
Easily create a virtual server on your private cloud for each of your Magento websites. Manage peak traffic loads with ease by spinning up load balancers as needed, and create development and staging servers where you can work on new features and test site upgrades. The sky’s the limit with Storm’s Magento Private Cloud.
