Are these ports necessary when using cPanel?

    Just wondering if ports like these (see below) are necessary on a standard, generic cPanel/CloudLinux server with no special gaming or other software installed? For example, would the Webhost Manager ports need to be opened if only cPanel is being used to manage accounts?

    Thanks very much.

    1129 - SAPHostControl over SOAP/HTTPS

    Hello :)

    You can close the WHM ports if you do not need to access them. Or, you may want to use the "Host Access Control" option so that only specific IP addresses can access it:

    Host Access Control

    Thank you.
