    I'm annoyed by the swiss cheese of cPanel. Specially, all the login methods available.
    It causes problems, and I'm tired of it.

    I want to entirely block
    - subdomains (cpanel., whm., etc)
    - subfolders (/cpanel, /whm, etc)

    I DO NOT want to merely redirect them. I want the requests to be 404.

    Not on a per-domain level, but the whole server. This is honestly a stupid feature, and should not exist.

    How can these be disabled permanently?

    Hello :)

    You can disable the "Proxy subdomains" option under the "Domains" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings". The "ScriptAliasMatch" entries for /cpanel, /whm, and /webmail can be removed from the /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf file. Remember to edit the httpd.conf file using the instructions at the URL below to ensure the changes are preserved:

    Thank you.
