Always got to be careful not to put the administrator username for WHMCS like admin or administrator but something hard to guess.

IP restriction to WHMCS admin area is a must. Otherwise you are risking your WHMCS to be accessed by hackers.

Securing the WHMCS admin area is really smart. Can use htpasswd way to do this and IP restiction.
