How do I delete a database?

Warning: Once a database has been deleted, there is no way to reverse the action unless you have a backup that you can restore the deleted data from. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to keep an up-to-date backup of your databases as your 123 Reg hosting package does not come with a backup service.
