    Is it possible to disable cPanel/WHM creating subdomains for every domain? I disabled webdisk and don't need the subdomain created... I don't need "www" added to subdomains "".

    You can disable proxy subdomains globally via the following options under the "Domains" tab in "WHM >> Tweak Settings":

    "Proxy subdomains"
    "Proxy subdomain creation"
    "Thunderbird and Outlook autodiscover and autoconfig support (enables proxy subdomain and SRV record creation)"

    Then, to remove the existing proxy subdomain records for all accounts, run the following command:

     /scripts/proxydomains remove
    Note the "mail" and "www" entries are not proxy subdomains and thus will remain on the system as aliases. It's not possible to remove these entries by default without modifying the default Apache template:

    Disable default www entry for all subdomains and hostname
    Add option to control ServerAlias www entries for subdomains

    Thank you.
