Do you want to enhance the security of your server? You can use the security advisor feature available in your WHM to examine your configurations. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you on how to conduct a cPanel Security Advisor scan using WHM. This practical feature can analyze your Dedicated Hosting or VPS server for potential security threats and provide recommendations to help you strengthen your defenses.

It’s important to note that cPanel creation is no longer unrestricted, and cPanel Pricing Changes have been made. You can check out the current pricing for cPanel licenses for further details. For additional information regarding this update, please refer to our cPanel Pricing FAQ.

    Security suggestions will vary from red for important issues, yellow for medium security issues, blue for informational warnings, and green if it passes security checks.
