    Please tell me if you have to jail users for added security if you do not allow shell access at all. If you do need to still jail the users can you please tell me how? Also if I need to do this is there a way to do all customers on the box at once? Thank you very much

    We do not grant shell access/jail shell to any clients but choose 'Manage Shell Access' from the left menu in WHM - you can enable jail shell from there - the button to the right.

    You're welcome. If it says disabled for everyone then noone has jail shell access.

    So I assume I am secure regarding this issue and I need not take any further action. Thank you very much

    Yes, as long as all buttons shows 'disabled' you're secure but it's a good idea to check it from time to time.
