On another site I own I have a secure page (https) with a form on it in which people can add their credit card number etc. send the form and have the form notify me that someone has used the form. I then go to a secure page, enter a password and get the info. Can I do that with Dreamhost and what do i need to do it?

It's certainly possible, but I wouldn't recommend it. Most credit card processors have incredibly strict requirements on how you can store credit card numbers (they must be stored encrypted, for instance) and how you need to control and audit access to them. Meeting their requirements may be hard, and will require your web site to undergo a series of PCI security scans.

All in all, I'd really steer clear of trying to handle credit card numbers on Dreamhost's servers. You're probably much better off getting someone else to handle it for you!
