Hi,

I am using the reseller interface and I want to delete all the Proxy subdomains records created when a subdomain is added.

If I understood well, those records are written in the DNS zone and httpd.conf file, then:
If I delete Proxy subdomains from [cPanel / DNS Zone Editor] do they will be removed from all the additional configurations in httpd.conf and related files?

Thank you

PD I know the best is turning this function off, but my provider does not want to.However, this a cPanel issue, because the Proxy domains are not required in a subdomain, I do not know a single case in which cpcalendars.subdomain.domain.com is used. The people, if the case, work with cpcalendars.domain.com. Please let me know what percentage of your customers use the Proxy domains of a subdomain? Does such percentage justify to add that garbage to the rest of us? How can I remove it safely?

Some people would want them, and honestly, having those DNS entries doesn't actually hurt anything, however, you can still edit the DNS zone and remove them if you so choose. it won't break anything by removing them (except their functionality)

Do you know if this will remove the httpd.conf settings or they need to me deleted manually too?

Hello @Rocko,

The service subdomains are added to each domain's SSL and non-SSL virtual hosts as aliases. You won't be able to remove these entries without root access to the system to adjust the EA4 Apache template. That said, removing the "A" records from the DNS zones will effectively prevent access to those subdomains because requests to them will fail to resolve to an IP address.

Thank you.
