How can I secure my VPS?

We suggest the following things to secure your VPS:

- Disable root login on your SSH service

- Disable password auth and enable key based auth on your SSH service

- Install and configure fail2ban

- Remove unnecessary software

- Always keep your software/scripts updated

- Do not use outdated Kloxo Panel

- Do not use zPanel

- Harden your /tmp (Disable software execution on the partition)

- If you have static IP or you use a VPN, configure your SSH to only allow login from those IPs.
