I basically agree with Simon Hayters statement that if they gained shell access - unless they had limited shell access by injection into say a php application that was using shell_exec - I personally would start thinking about restoring the system from trusted sources. But then the question becomes - if you don't learn how they got in that time - how can ...
If they are able to login via your SHELL then its pretty much game over and as mentioned by @w3d Apache log files are least of your worries. Apache writes to log files directly, no one can view those logs unless they are stored within the hosting path. If security is a major concern then you should confirm that you use the following practices: Your ...
If you have an SSH password, then your connection doesn't need the SSH key. Username/Password is enough to connect. SSH key authentication is a way of connecting to a server without having to use a password. If you only want to allow key-based login, you can try contacting your host and ask them disable password login over SSH(/SFTP).
This appears to be an asmallorange shared hosting issue in that they do not require a key for SFTP connections.

It may potentially be slightly easier to setup, but using cloudflare.com is not difficult. You may ...
You could set your cPanel username as the same as your domain name, but people may not know that this is what you're doing if you do that unless you tell them specifically that's what you're doing. If people know what your username is, you've just made half of the guessing work done for possible hackers. It's quite common that the username will be the ...
Of course. If you do so, you'll make hacking process easier.

I run a dedicated server with cpanel and the web server that it integrates with is apache and I assume you're account is in a similar setup. What you want to do immediately is use whatever patience you have to periodically check the server logs, and look for entries of systems trying to access URL's that return a 404 error code. Then search for the files ...
I have had the same behavior: it was caused by the hoster's server (auto)-backup settings. Contact your hoster and say, you want purge account's data completely, so the folder structure will not come back, after you manually delete it. And, in addition, check how are your own backup settings in cpanel.
