I have hosting with hostgator and I have a domain name with them which I installed wordpress to make a blog. However, now I want to use this domain for the purpose of putting up a squeeze page, as I was not getting much success with it being a blog.
My question is, how do I wipe this site clean and start fresh? Do I simply go into the public_html folder and delete everything? If so, what files do I leave behind? Everything looks like a cluttered mess in there.
Also, another question: with this blog, I submitted it to various RSS feeds and such and it's indexed in Google, would I get penalized by Google if I suddenly change it to a squeeze page about making money when the original blog was about home gardening?
