Digital Ocean PCI DSS Server Compliance


I’ve scanned resources regarding this within the DO community, but what level of PCI compliance are the DO servers if any?

I’m currently running a magento store and planning on letting users enter card information on site but process the transaction with 3rd party such as sage or stripe.

Has anyone tackled this before?

I roughly followed this guide:

the droplet passed the PCI Compliance scanner on the first try. In years past (when I was using other hosting) there would always be something that needed fixing or updated, so it was nice to have it pass on the first go.

Moderator update (2021): Our certifications are now available via our Trust Platform at

You can find information on our certifications/compliance for each datacenter here.

Much of PCI-DSS compliance depends on the configuration of your droplet and the services you run on it. We do not provide a hardened image by default but you receive full root access to configure your droplets as you require.

Hello there,

You can see the certificates and we recently changed this page so you can download the certificates you’d need here:

Hope this helps!
