In order to use SSL, which is a requirement for anyone who wishes to transmit secure information, like credit card numbers. You can request a SSL Certificate through cPanel, so it’s simple to get your web security up and running.

A Dedicated IP Address—A dedicated IP address is a prerequisite for a SSL Certificate. It also gives you greater control over your website, including the ability to access it directly via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

PCI Compliant Servers—The Payment Card Industry (PCI) is an organization that was created by the major credit card companies to establish standards for secure financial transactions online.
