    Is there a way to find lost blog content from a few years?

    Hi - I hope this isn't answered already -

    I had a great blog (Wordpress) associated with a GoDaddy account a few years ago - it was active about 5 years - and I completely forgot about it and it expired when I had my child. It's been years now, any way to gain access to the lost blog info or blog? Just wondering.

    Thank you!

    Hey there @Lscherer 

     

    Unfortunately, unless you have your own backup, that info is most likely lost. GoDaddy retains backups for approximately 30 days after the cancellation of a hosting product and then they delete it from their servers.

     

    You may be able to look the blog up on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine and copy/paste the info however.
