    yes, you can delete all file / folder under public_html directory.
    If you are feeling unsafe, make a backup of these files before deleting.

    Hello :)

    Those files are associated with FrontPage extensions. You may want to uninstall FrontPage extensions for the account before deleting those files.

    Thank you.
