    Hello,

    How can I disable /cpanel and ports 2082 and 2083 on my domain?? Because it looks like cpanel is very easy to brute forced..

    You can close them in the firewall, so nobody will be able to login through them.

    On Linux, the firewall cannot block on those ports for a set domain. It can block on those ports for a set IP. FreeBSD does allow domain-specific firewall blocking depending on the firewall being used (such as pf), but CentOS and Linux on iptables does not have that capability. It will translate the domain into the IP, so if you try to block via the domain name in the firewall, it will block it on the IP instead.
