This is a basic steps to configure your server:
Check Server Time: date
Update to latest kernel
Install a Firewall: I recommend CSF
Tweak Settings (Configuration Guide) -> Tweak Settings
Enable Apache mod_userdir protection
Disable Compiler Access
And a lot of things...
Ps: CSF has one scan to help you with some configs
CSF installation: http://www.configserver.com/free/csf/install.txt
You can also have a look on below checklist for security and optimization of your server :
Security Software Installations
Complete Server Setup, and NS configuration.
CSF firewall installation.
Installing Mod-Security with Advanced Rules
Installing Clamav Anti Virus (Integrating Exim)
Installing Maldet ( Malicious Code Removal Software )
System Optimization and Hardening
Lockdown & Hardening the Root Password
Secure SSHD Port
Network Security with hosts.allow & hosts.deny
Enable DDOS Protection
Root Login Email Notifications
Noexec, Nosuid Temporary Directories (noexec Directories such as /tmp, /var/tmp, /dev/shm)
Security Updates as released by OS and/or Control Panel
Disable Unwanted Services
Enable PHP Open_Basedir Protection
Enable mod_userdir Protection
Securing Console Access
Configuring Anti-Spam Features to Reduce Spam ( Enable RBL ACLs, SPF Protection, & Spam Assassin Configurations )
There are no specific steps you must complete after installation. The security advice is useful, but your access level here lists you as a reseller. Thus, you may not have root access to complete those steps. In that case, you are free to start creating accounts and managing your websites.
