Hello,

I would like to know about security feature/plugin to protect website hosting in cPanel from any hack. Does cPanel have feature to protect SQL database like SQL injection? Are there any feature/ plugin to prevent attack website hosting in cPanel?

Hi Janny,
As rpvw suggests ModSecurity is a good place to start, as well as installing the FREE CSF Plugin (ConfigServer Security & Firewall). Adopting good practice when interacting with MYSQL and PHP are other areas you may consider reading up on (Google MYSQL security for example). Enforce strict HTTPS connections. Closing down unused Services and Ports. Regular offsite backups (do not host your backups on your server it defeats the object essentially). Learn to understand log files and their outputs. Keeping everything up to date is essential. If in doubt, and you are responsible for other users data, and not overly confident in your ability, then consider paying a professional to carry out these tasks for you (there are many recommended here on the CPanel Forums).

It can be challenging but rewarding learning about your servers security.

Best of luck.
