Solved Domain/website has been deleted

Post by eaustinn36 on November 1st 2013, 10:52 pm

First off, sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I don't come here often.

I am a co-admin of a website that we had put on "holiday" for awhile while we were working some things out. Another admin assured me that there were no fees and there was no chance that anything would happen to the site while it was down, and I believed him.

As of now, the domain has been removed and doesn't exist (guessing due to inactivity). This literally happened a few hours ago (I check the site every day), and was wondering if forumotion keeps temporary back-ups or if there was any way to recover the website? It has 5+ years of history and hundreds of thousands of posts and threads.

I will be happy to provide any additional info on an as-needed basis to any forumotion staff. I would appreciate a response as soon as conveniently possible. If there is a "fee" to recover the site, I don't mind. Thank you.

- Erik

Hi,

Do you know the URL address used before buying the domain? The domain expires every year.

Regards,
Sir Chivas.

Yes I do, but didn't want to post it public in case someone wanted to take it (which would cause problems). I am PMing you it now.

Nevermind, I think you just answered my question when I manually typed in the old name. That was the issue. Thanks!

Hi,

That isn't the URL that you had before. I'm talking about the URL that was used before buying the domain. The free one that is provided by the support forum.

Something like:

> youraddress.forumotion.com
> youraddress.2forum.biz
> youraddress.forum-free.org

etc..

Yes I know. As I mentioned above, the issue has been resolved, the domain name just expired. I typed in the original url and it loaded. Guess I just went into a panic... been a long day so I wasn't thinking of all the possibilities.

Thanks anyway.

Yes it is resolved.

I apologize for the double post, I meant to hit edit instead of quote; won't happen again.

Thanks again.
