  3. If you would like to delete the folder the sub-domain is assigned to, then click the 'Delete Folder' checkbox. When you're ready to delete the sub-domain click the 'Confirm Delete' button.

    Note: Please be cautious when deleting the folder this sub-domain is assigned, because if anything else in your site is using resources in this folder then you're likely to remove content from your site.
