    Hi,


    Domains have:
    cpcalendars.domain.com
    cpcontacts.domain.com
    webdisk.domain.com
    autoconfig.domain.com
    autodiscover.domain.com
    _autodiscover._tcp.domain.com
    _caldav._tcp.domain.com
    _caldavs._tcp.domain.com
    _carddav._tcp.domain.com
    _carddavs._tcp.domain.com
    _caldav._tcp.domain.com
    _caldavs._tcp.domain.com
    _carddav._tcp.domain.com
    _carddavs._tcp.domain.com
    default._domainkey.domain.com

    How do they work? What is the purpose of each one? How shall I access dem?

    UPDATE: I found they are mentioned in < Tweak Settings - Domains - 11.50 Documentation - cPanel Documentation > but there is no explanation about:
    1. How to they work (only links for the autodiscover).
    2. How to delete them from the DNS Zones and httpd.conf. I wonder if deleting them in [cPanel / Zone Editor ] will also delete the lines from httpd.conf.
    3. How to avoid them when you create a subdomain. In all the cases I have known, a subdomain.domain.com uses the email services from domain.com. There is no need for having autodiscover.subdomain.domain.com This is garbage.

    Thank you

    .. And I should assume that it is also ok to delete them AFTER creation ?

    It's safe to remove these subdomains, however you should use the script below instead of manually removing the entries:

    Code:
    # /scripts/proxydomains
    Usage:
        servicedomains [action] [options]
    
            Options:
              --help                          Brief help message
              --man                           Full help message
              --user=                         User to configure
              --domain=                       Domain to configure
              --subdomain=                    Service subdomain to manipulate
              --no_replace=0                  Enable replacment of existing records (currently
                                              only used for changing autodiscover hosts)
              --old_autodiscover_host=        The previously configured autodiscover host (used
                                              for matching old records and updating them to the
                                              new host)
              --force_autodiscover_support=1  Behave as if the autodiscover support has not been
                                              disabled even if it has. This is useful for
                                              removing the autodiscovery service subdomains after
                                              the support for them has been disabled.
              --ifenabled                     Only perform the operation if service subdomains
                                              are enabled.
    
            Actions:
              add          Create service subdomains
              remove       Remove service subdomains
    
    For example, to disable the "webdisk" service subdomain from a specific domain, execute the following command:

    Code:
    /scripts/proxydomains --domain=domain123.tld --subdomain=webdisk remove
    Thank you.
