    It's either a flood on your DNS port or a DNS vulnerability exploit.
    Most registrars can host your DNS, so better let them do it so that you don't have to worry about it.

    I haven't used cPanel much, but it looks like it can update your system's services for your when new patches are released, so make sure you do this.

    Additionally, here are some extra hardening steps you can take:
