    Hello, I was wondering if someone could tell me the best way to secure the a cpanel server with 1 single cpanel account?

    Most of the guides I have read are to secure a server with multiple cpanel accounts, however this is my personal dedicated server and will only have 1 trusted cpanel account...

    Obviously I will still be securing SSH and using CSF (firewall) but is it necessary to follow the large security configuration guides when you only have 1 user? and I also have a dedicated IP address so I'm sure I must be able to lock down most services to that IP?

    If your server is online, it should be secured. Whether you've got 1 account or 1,000 accounts.
