Whether you have added content already or your site is still just showing the Hub landing page, it is pretty easy to wipe the slate clean so to speak. Just <a href='http://www.webhostinghub.com/support/edu/cpanel/101-getting-started/how-to-login-to-cpanel'>log into your cPanel</a> and navigate to the <a href='http://www.webhostinghub.com/support/edu/cpanel/202-managing-files/file-manager'>File Manager</a>. After you are in the File Manager if you logged in to the Web Root you will automatically be in the public_html folder. It is safe to delete anything in this folder, as this is where the files for your website are kept. We recommend keeping the cgi-bin folder as you may need it while you are testing, but the other folders are not required and can be removed.
If you have any databases (by default there are not any, so if you have not installed any programs then there will not be any databases), you can delete those in the MySQL Databases section of the cPanel, which is in the Databases subsection. By each Database, under "Actions" is an option to delete the database.
Once the public_html folder is empty, your site will show as not existing if anyone visits it in their browser. If you still wanted to upload files so you could test them out to make sure your code is working, there are a few different ways to do that. The easiest way is to create a folder that only you know the name of (for example, Test) in the public_html folder. This can be done in your File Manager as well. Then you can upload files into the Test folder and see what it looks like at http://www.yourdomain.com/Test. If you decide at any point you want the files live on your site, you can just move them from the test folder into the public_html folder.
