Did my forum get deleted?

Solved Did my forum get deleted?

Post by bob8972 on July 26th 2012, 8:20 pm

Hello, I made a forum using forumotion years ago, and I had paid for a custom domain for 2 years. My forum was made to discuss video games, just a basic forum based on gaming. It had hundreds of registered users, and over 70,000+ posts made on it. However, it kind of died in late 2011, but I wanted to still keep it up for all the work and time I've spent on it. Recently, my custom domain expired because I decided I wasn't going to pay for it anymore. When I go on my custom domain, it just brings me to this.

So I figured that if I go on my old domain, then it would bring up the old site...but it doesn't. Just the GoDaddy image above. I want to know is that, was my entire forum deleted? Will I never be able to access it again? It has over 4 years worth of content on it, and I would hate to see it all be gone forever.

Someone please help me, I would like to still see how my forum is doing. I haven't been on it in a few months, and I think the custom domain thing expired last month.

I've tried accessing my old domain which I originally had when I first made my forum back in February 2008, but I can't access it. I just get a GoDaddy message.

You mean on the admin panel? I kind of lost access to that. I don't know if it's still there or not.

Why did you buy a domain from GoDaddy and not Forumotion?
GoDaddy is known to cause problems to people, just like this.

Use register because on my old domain they didn't give me these problems. Also people find forumotion to be too expensive (Some).

I didn't register with GoDaddy. 2 years ago on the admin panel, it gave me an option to have a custom domain, so I bought one. I thought it was through Forumotion or something.

Oh cool, I went on ulilites, and it showed me the current domain for my forum. It used to end with "yahoo board", but now it ends with "free-message-board.com". I don't know why. Everything is there like before though.

Thanks for your help!
