Support » Fixing WordPress » Deleting an old website

  • I need to delete an old wordpress website that is no longer in use but for which I do not have any admin login details for (it was created and already superseded by a new website before I started working for the organisation. It creates problems now and again when someone finds it and uses the old membership form from it. How do I do delete the site?

  • You do both install and delete from the host control panel, not from inside WordPress.

    Thanks but I don’t have any of those details and no way of getting them – the only thing I have to go on is that it is on WordPress! So what I really need to do is to talk to someone from WordPress as to how I go about removing the site…

    If it is on wordpress.com, you should go to their support. Here, we support the self-hosted WordPress, which means you have to have an account with a host. If you do, but don’t know how to log in there, you have to follow the money (who is paying for the host?) to get the credentials.

    Thanks – to be honest, I have no idea – this is the website https://icomosuk.wordpress.com/ – which is indeed on .com site. We are not paying for it, that much I am sure of. Anyway I’ll try wordpress.com then.
    Thank you for your help.
