    Question deleting pages from public_html

    I thought that if I went int Blue FTP and deleted a folder -for sale-from the public_html side all it's files would be removed from the internet. I did that but the pages still come up on the net. Can someone tell me what to do to delete this folder?
    In searching for an answer I found this:

    You can also open BlueVoda and goto Tools>FTP>connect.
    Find the folder or
    file and click X [delete]

    that's what I did.I did not remove the file from the BlueVoda side of the FTP. Do I have to? I may need them later.

    Next I tried the c panel. I watched the tutorial, which I finally figured out is for the Legacy File Manager. In Blue Voda I have a folder called for sale which holds all the files I want to remove. In either File Manager this folder does not show up, although others do. It's a wonder my sites work at all- but they do!

    I have created a new web site (strawbalehomeforsale.com) that mirrors the content in the for sale folder in humnew.com and I understand search engines do not like that.

    Do not delete the files from your computer if you think that you will use them again.
    This has no effect on deleting form your public_html on your server.
    When you delete a page from your public_html file it is gone...
    However, various computers may still cache the old page for a while.
