Hi,

-If i edit file "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" and disable access with "root" account (PermitRootLogin = no), WHM/cPanel will have errors?.

-If i disable Port 22 and enable other port for access by SSH, WHM/cPanel will have problems/errors?.

-If i edit file "/etc/sudoers" and disable timestamp (for "sudo" command) will have any problem?: Defaults:ALL timestamp_timeout=0

Thank you very much.

1. No issues on whm/Cpanel. Before disabling root create key for ssh
2. No issues, you can change the port. Dont remember to add the port in Firewalls
3. No issues

Thank you very much friend. Last question:

Can i use for example port 2000 or more for SSH?, or isn't recommended?. Please tell me wich is good recommendation port ranges for not have errors.

Thank you very much.

You can use any port which are not using by a cpanel server

If you're not aware, using Host Access Control you can restrict SSH access to trusted IP's.
So regardless of which port it's on, no one is getting in unless they come from a trusted IP address.
I have mine locked down to just our office and the server provider.
