I have a Cpanel server and all I need to use it for is web hosting and FTP. I don't need DNS (it's hosted elsewhere), email, or anything else. Although I guess I do want SSH for management, and SMTP to enable the host to send notification emails. But I'd like to disable as much of everything else as possible. What's the best procedure?
