How to Delete a WordPress Site

The steps to deleting a WordPress site will depend on how you first installed it. 

If you are using a WP Enthusiast, WP Professional, or WP Professional Plus package, see these steps. 

If you installed WordPress through PairSIM, see these steps instead.

If you are using a WP Enthusiast, WP Professional, or WP Professional Plus package, then WordPress was installed at the same time that you created your site. However, this added ease means that the tutorial for deleting a WordPress site differs from other hosting packages. 

To delete a WordPress site from WP Enthusiast, WP Professional, or WP Professional Plus, follow the steps below:

Please note, once deleted, the WordPress site will be removed from the account. It will no longer be accessible and cannot be recovered. Please be absolutely certain you have all content you wish to keep from the site prior to deleting it.

  1. Log into the Account Control Center (ACC)
