I have never used backup for my Cpanel, I've only had my site for >1month, I have no Idea how to undo everything that I've done. I've looked through file manager, and I don't know which files have always been there or have been added through my playing around and experimenting. I have no problem starting from scratch (like I just purchased my hosting package and just logged into my cpanel for the first time) However, I need to make sure my domain name is still connected to my cpanel. What do I do?

Yes, any hosting provider should be able to delete and re-setup your account for free, aka "reset" it, as long as you don't mind all of your data (files, emails, etc.) being gone forever.

Otherwise, you should make a backup of your home directory (cPanel > Backup) and manually pick out the html (or php, jsp, etc.) files to keep.

Good luck. :cool:

Thanks!!

Thanks a lot. I think I figured it out with out having to do all of that. I do have another question, do you know where to download those smiley sets that are used in these forums? I have these really boring ones on my site, and I wanted to replace them with nicer ones. :D :eek:
Thanks for your help so far.
