cPanel, without any doubt eases out the developers work by providing GUI while working on the server and also provides some inbuilt features to install various softwares in just one click. One of the major advantages of Cpanel servers with WHM is that multiple websites can be hosted on a single server and hence cutting down the cost and development time of working on multiple servers.
Apart from these advantages cPanel also comes with some security challenges to protect the data of multiple websites being hosted on the server as nowadays attacks on cPanel are increasing day by day. So keeping your cPanel server secure is also a major challenge while hosting the websites on cPanel servers.
E2E Cloud’s cPanel servers come with high degree of security without compromising the performance of the server. Followings are the little known ways of cPanel security for cloud servers in E2E Cloud.
Setting up a strong Password – Setting up the strong password is the first and basic step to secure the cPanel server. Most of the attacks of cPanel servers are being carried out through the compromised passwords of the servers. One must use open source password generator tools to set up the strong password which is difficult to compromise.
Enabling Firewall – Enabling the firewall is another step to secure your cPanel server. While performing various tasks cPanel server connects with many outside services and websites. We have to make sure that no malicious tool or suspicious script enters our cPanel server and here the firewall comes very handy to block such suspicious services. Also E2E Cloud’s cPanel servers come with integrated security shields like BitNinja and Imunify360.

Disable Anonymous FTP: One of the less known features of cPanel is that it allows users to anonymously use FTP (file transfer protocol) to gain access to your servers files. Files can be put virtually without showing the identity.
To prevent this, one should disable FTP access in the cPanel server by tweaking some settings in the server. Go to Service Configuration → FTP Server Configuration. You will get the option to disable “anonymous logins”.
Backed up data regularly – Backups are the only tool to get your unaffected copy of data once any malicious script enters the systems.
