How do I reinstall / reset my CMS?

You can reset or reinstall your CMS (ex. WordPress) via the control panel. The procedure is a bit different depending on your hosting package.

If you have ordered a WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Magento package, we will install it on your hosting package for you. In this article we explain how to reinstall or reset WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Magento (your CMS). If you reinstall your CMS, your hosting package will be completely reset and all your data will be erased.

Follow these steps in the control panel:

  1. Go to “My products”> “Web hosting”> Click the button “Manage hosting” to the right of your domain name for which your CMS is installed.
  2. In the menu on the left, choose WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Magento (depending on which CMS you have chosen)
  3. Go to the “Reinstall” tab and click “Reinstall”. Your hosting package is completely reset and all data is deleted.
  4. Set a new password after reinstalling your CMS.

Reinstall CMS

If you have regular Web hosting, you can do a custom installation of any CMS. For your convenience, every Web hosting is equipped with a 1-click CMS installer. You can use that 1-click option to install and reset your CMS.


Please pay special attention to the fact that when you reset your Managed WordPress environment, the databases, test environments, and backups kept in your account are also reset – they are permanently deleted. We advise you to make a manual copy of your website if you have any doubts about the reset.

  1. Go to “My products”> “Web hosting”> Click on “Manage” next to your domain name.
  2. On your left, click on “Developer tools”.
  3. Scroll all the way down and click on “Reset environment”.
  4. A popup window will appear with a warning message you are about to delete your WordPress setup. Click to add a checkmark and click again on “Reset environment”.
  5. You will know you did it right when you are forwarded back to the quick setup – your account is now empty and you can do a fresh install.
