Removing a site from current hosing and domain ??

Hi, as your all aware at different point through the tracks domains and hosting are required to follow along.

I am now on a different track and I feel my best option if at all possible would be to remove the current files associated with the domain name rather than to purchase another for the sake of a slightly different course.

Is this possible (i have all info for hosting / contol panel ) If so how ??

In file management delete all WordPress files. If you installed into your root directory, delete all the files and directories installed by WordPress (wp-config.php, /wp-content/, /wp-admin/ etc). Be careful to not delete any other files you might have had there before WordPress. If WordPress is in a subdirectory, simply delete the subdirectory and all its contents.

Next is the database, go into phpmyadmin, usually through the database or mysql option. Select the database used by your WordPress install and drop all the WordPress tables.

Great Help Worked a treat !!!!!
