When I sign up for hosting here, it asks me to fax a bunch of information to a fax number. Something strange is that it asks for me to make an imprint of my actual Credit Card with a crayon. I do not feel comfortable doing this with all the scams out there today. My Credit Card could easily be duplicated and sold/used by someone else.
Is there any way I can contact Dreamhost via phone or verify my credit card another way? I would feel a lot better if I could do this.
Also, another thing is that I was curious why there is no Secure Payment/Transaction used when purchasing hosting from Dreamhost. It’s just you type in you Credit Card number and BAM - you purchased hosting. Normally with other hosting sites it says like “Secure Payment” or something related to that.
This is a great deal, but some things are too good to be true and I just don’t want to be scammed (obviously). Thanks for reading this, and thanks for your replies.
