In my new host I have a Cpanel, which is completely different than Plesk that I had. Every day my server hgets hundreds of failed login attemots. My host says it is normal and I should not pay attention. But the last sentence in this WHM warning says to investigate the even for the integrity of my host? Please help with advise. Thanks very much:

"The remote system was found to have exceeded acceptable login failures on host.domain.com; there was 53 events to the service sshd. As such the attacking host has been banned from further accessing this system. For the integrity of your host you should investigate this event as soon as possible."

Investigating failed attempts can quickly become a full time job. It's up to you how much time you want to spend on it. If you are going to do it, you need to learn how to do a whois. Below is the information about the IP in question. Email him if you decide that's what you want to do.
