    Hello

    If your root access is secure enough you need to be sure that your server kernel and software are free from known vulnerabilities, and so on.
    Where is your server located is much more about redundant and stable power, network connection and physical access restriction.

    Only because your server is hosting at 'professional datacenter' didn't make it secure by default!
