Many online stores will choose low budget shared hosting services to save money and this can result in slow performance and poor reliability. Buy Truck Stuff / United Group uses reliable dedicated hosting with secure servers that guarantee Buy Truck Stuff 99.99% up time.
In summary, there is no relationship between buying products on the Internet and stolen credit card information IF the web site from which you are purchasing uses an industry leading payment security provider and a state of the art hosting service. As a matter of fact, your credit card is at much greater risk at your local restaurant than a secure web site. In England, restaurants are actually bringing credit card processors to your table so your credit card never leaves your sight.
