I already know about this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-cpanel-on-a-virtual-server-running-centos-6 and this https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/Tips+to+Make+Your+Server+More+Secure

But just creating a CentOS + cPanel droplet and following the tips my server is already with all security needs or there are more importants steps to make it safe? Safe as a shared host like Hostgator or similar?

Thanks.

Since cPanel/WHM basically takes over management of the various pieces of software it relies on, your best bet would be to refer to their official documentation starting with this guide on recommended security settings.
