    I have a hosting with Godaddy - I just wanted to know I have installed a website in my root directory and I have other website hosted in folders' but if I delete the root site will it affect all sites in any manner ?

    You can remove the website from the root directory without affecting the other sites in their own folders.

    As always, make a backup before you attempt this!

    I have done this very task just recently when switching out the root site, which was built with Joomla!, to a different site made with WordPress. What I did was create a new folder in the root called old_root_site and copied the root files to it. Once I verified that they all copied OK, then I deleted them from the root.

    Cheers!
