How does DreamHost process credit cards?


I was wondering what provider DreamHost uses to process credit cards and store the credit card data. I have an account and noticed that they’re able to keep the credit card data on file. I’m wondering how they do this securely.


As this is a “customer-to-customer” forum, we’d probably just be guessing. :wink: That would be a good question to pose directly to support, as they’d most likely have the “real scoop”.

They have talked a bit about their credit card handling on their blog (last year) in this post and a previous post linked to in that one. You might find some of that interesting.


When processed by google checkout, it’s google security.

When processed by Dreamhost, it’s ninja security (# 94). :wink:

Get [color=#CC0000]$97[/color] Off with promo code :[color=#CC0000]97USA[/color] :cool: -->choose your plan (promo code included)

as rlparker mentioned, we can only guess because we are also customers. You may want to file a ticket to DH support for better clarification.

However, you can remove your credit card info via DH panel --> Billing --> Make Payment --> Remove this card

Save [color=#CC0000]$97[/color] (max discount) with [color=#CC0000]97CRAZY[/color] Save [color=#CC0000]$82[/color] get lifetime domain with [color=#CC0000]82CRAZY[/color] Sign Up NOW

if you do that you have to make sure you make the required payment to your account using CC or paypal before your renewal date.

Pay just [color=#CC0000]$22.40[/color] for 1 year Dreamhost hosting, use promo-code [color=#CC0000]MOJO97[/color]
Save [color=#CC0000]$97[/color] on all 1 and 2 year plans!! (Max saving on monthly plans too!!)

i hope our credit card information is secure. I always check my statements to ensure there is no theft.
