    I don't usually like giving scans of my drivers license and credit card online, but Hostgator has asked me for identification to verify my account.

    P.S Does anybody know how long this process takes?

    They are secured. You can give them the documents. You won't face any problem with that.
    Thanks

    In my case was not too long. I just send them my driver license ( edited ) and a few moments later they activated my hosting account.

    Do they dispose of your documents after they've verified?

    You can't !!!! PERIOD

    Ask them if they have the facility by law to store this kind of documents and if they are going to take the damage claims if your documents should
    leaked by hostgator due to a hacker attack.
    You will see they wont and anybody working in Hostgator can take your details from your documents and take a quick online loan based on this document.
