This is probably a noobish question, but i have searched the forums and cant not find an exact answer.

A client of mine (developing an MMOCC) is concerned about the security of using cpanel on his servers because of the risj of hackers knowing the ports for cpanel and whm. I have told him how to remove the /whm and /cpanel so only ports can be used, but is there any way to change the port which cpanel runs on?

If not is there a fix or an alternative to decrease the risk of hacking of cpanel, and ultimatly, the server?

Thanks again,
Jonny

You could just firewall off the cPanel/WHM ports to only allow a set IP address/range.
