Hello Speedguide,

I've been recently researching on how to make the checkout process for an E-commerce web site PCI compliant, and I have a few questions that I'm not sure about.

At the moment, it looks like I will not be looking to maintain my own servers.

So is it possible to use a shared web hosting server and still maintain a PCI compliant checkout?

Is the only option to use a dedicated web server hosting to have PCI compliance?

From what I've been reading, much of the PCI compliant requirements seem to emphasize how accessibility to the server is maintained. So I guess my next question is, what are some things that I as a programmer would have to worry about in my client and server side code as it pertains to PCI compliance?


Any help in the right direction is much appreciated.
Thanks!
