    My account on a cPanel powered host was hacked, is there any way to recover it?

    What do you mean by "recover it"? Recover what?

    If you have access to cPanel only and the password has been changed, then ask your host to change your password to something secure. After that is done you need to upload your sites content again (removing whatever was there from the hackers first).

    If you have access to WHM, then change the password fot the site and upload your sites content again (removing whatever was there from the hackers first).
