What ports should I block, or steps I should take...?

    I was hacked by some screwball. One of the recommendations an "expert" gave me was to block unused ports on my cPanel. I currently don't have any HTTPS/secure sections on the site.

    Will blocking some ports offer any protection? Which ones should I block?

    Are there any other steps I can take that doesn't require A+ certification?

    Thanks much for the help!
