    Are the domains other sites hosted on your server, in which case these are most likely symlinks to other sites which have been made via an exploit. Also, what version of Wordpress is on this site? If this is the case you need to take immediate action and thoroughly check your server as it is likely that many other accounts have also been compromised due to this, with some of your clients login details likely being obtained.

    Hello :)

    Could you provide more details on what you see in the public_html directory? Are these symbolic links or just directories? You can search for "WordPress" in our Security forum and you will see several threads where security issues related to WordPress are discussed.

    Thank you.

    Even a screenshot of your public_html directory can help things to explain in a better way.
