Sometimes the only way to delete a site is to delete all the files it uses.
If the domain a site uses has lapsed, it can no longer be accessed from the internet. The only way to delete all of the site's file is to use cPanel's File Manager page, which this procedure details. Of course, this will leave the site with no content, which will probably result in a 404 error page if the site can be accessed.
This procedure involves deleting all the Smallsite Design files and folder from the site root folder. The site for the account will be in the public_html folder in the account home folder, or a folder in it named with something resembling the domain name for an addon domain.
To delete a site's files:
2Open the File Manager page
by clicking on the File Manager link in the Files section.
3List the site root's contents
by clicking on the site's folder in the folder list, which will be public_html or one within it.
4Select the items to delete
4-1Select the first item
by clicking on the folder starting with sd.
The item's background is highlighted.
4-2Select the last item
by pressing and holding the Shift key and clicking on the last item, which is usually the robots.txt file.
All the items up and including the last clicked are also highlighted.
5Delete the items
5-1Initiate the delete
by clicking the ✖ Delete button under the page banner.
5-2Use the option to completely delete
by clicking the Skip the trash and permanently delete the files checkbox.
5-3Confirm the deletion
by clicking the Confirm button.
The files are deleted and the list updated. The File Manager page can be closed unless needed for another operation.
