Important

Deleting a User will also permanently remove all data owned by the User. Although DreamHost attempts to preserve the last 5 days-worth of data, there is no guarantee that any data from a deleted user can be recovered!

  1. If you are certain that you wish to permanently delete the user, click Remove on the confirmation dialog box.

    The user is deleted.
