What you get with this Hourlie

If you're running an e-commerce website with any sort of payment gateway, your site and the server it runs on should be fully compliant with PCI standards. Even if this has not been made mandatory by your card payment gateway provider, it's considered very important to help avoid unwanted intrusion into your site and the personal and payment data it holds.

I'm a professional UK-based server administrator and web developer. If you need to ease the pain of trying to become PCI compliant and you run a website on a Linux-based server with cPanel / WHM, then this Hourlie is for you.

Included in this Hourlie, I will:

- review your latest PCI compliance report (I can recommend a provider)
- address all server and website related issues in the report
- let you know if you need to buy anything for compliance and install it for you
- let you know if the improvements made have changed the way you access services on your website
- review your re-run PCI compliance report and address any outstanding server and website related issues, so you'll be PCI compliant on all these issues.

Also, how good is your server's SSL setup? Just having a certificate is not enough. You should have the most robust setup possible, with solid steps in place to protect against known vulnerabilities like POODLE, Logjam, BEAST etc. A great measure is the Qualys SSL Labs report - try running it on your site now! As an optional extra I can secure a minimum A rating for you, although usually I can deliver the sought-after A+ rating.

Please note:

- this Hourlie is NOT suitable if you are on standard shared hosting from a hosting company
- you must be able to provide full unrestricted access to your server, with root-level privileges
- you must have a licensed copy of cPanel / WHM installed on your server
- if any additional software / licenses / certificates need to be bought to secure PCI compliance, you are responsible for the cost of these
- you're responsible for the cost of formal PCI compliance reports - you'll need to send me your latest one when you buy this Hourlie and be willing to buy/run 3 more as the work progresses
- this Hourlie covers your server and one primary e-commerce website running on it
- the improvements made to your site's / server's security might change the way you have to access some things on it, such as SFTP/FTP, email or SSH, to secure PCI compliance. You must be willing to make the required changes at your end
