I migrated servers recently ,Moved from managed to unmanaged hosting .

Was wondering if iptables rules and other stuff carry over? .

Website is up and running on the new server so setup is fine.

I disable default fire wall ,Enabled csf ,cPBulk,changed ssh port .

I noticed while checking server logs that someone from China already tried to access the ssh and is ip banned on iptables .
Anything else i have to do to up security? Also regarding server updates do i have to do it regularly or can i do it like once a month .

Sorry if i got off topic it just feels overwhelming running everything myself for the first time .

Hello @omoe,

The following document is useful when configuring security settings on your server:

Recommended Security Settings - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

In terms of updates, I recommend enabling automatic updates for your preferred release tier per the instructions on the document below:

Update Preferences - Version 80 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
