Credit Card Account Updates
If you have a Visa® or MasterCard® card as your primary credit card on file with HostGator and the credit card number or expiration date changes, do not be alarmed if you notice your credit card information has been updated within your billing account since we participate in the Automatic Account Updater programs at both merchants.
The programs allowing sharing updated account information from your credit card company and HostGator.

Once a recurring billing authorization is submitted to your credit card company that is when the sharing process starts. When we receive new account information HostGator automatically updates your billing profile and any pending transactions will be attempted to be processed.
