We can rebuild it

About this image

My Jimdo website, which I created recently, got (probably) deleted. I can't access it anymore and still wait for an answer from the support. But this didn't stop me to use the time to build a new version of my website using Wordpress (just in case). Today, I finished the new header image. Although there's a small chance that they can recover my old site, I'm not sure if I stick with Jimdo then. I must trade off Jimdo's fast on site editing against the myriad design possibilities of Wordpress.

Did you experience that a hosting provider shut down your website without any forewarning?


Edit (9 June 2018):
The site is online again

Edit (11 June 2018):
I finished the new version of my website: Selenesshadowrealm.com

    Today, I found out that the site is online again! Thanks to the one who helped me to solve my problem. Nevertheless, I continue to work on the new version of Selene's Shadow Realm. I keep the old Jimdo site for archiving purposes and as soon as the new version is online I will leave a note on this site that I moved to another server.

    Would really like to see your website! We need more Oblivion mods.

      Yeah like full xbox controller support for PC - my ISP allows hosting of websites as most do as part of the monthly contract

    The design is overall finished and I began to fill the categories with my mods.

    It doesn't matter anymore if the old site can be restored. I will choose another hosting service this time and hope that this one will be more reliable. Maybe I use a paid one. I never used a paid one before. Well, there's a first time for everything.

    They likely shut it down due to inactivity. They likely have a very short inactivity amount. IE if you don't put something on it once every X months they pop it (yes like a balloon). To them it's just storage space they can use for something else.
    Wordpress is oft use as a base setup and hosting is elsewhere (hint of the moment).

    The web is much changed since the days of Geocities!

      Hosting it elsewhere is a good idea. If I ever have access to the old site again, I will make a final post on the site letting the users know that I've moved to another site (as soon as this site is finished).

    Chakaru, Darigaz, Mahtawa and Sasha had the exact same problem with their jimdo websites but they simply had to login and reactivate them.

      When logging in I always get the error message "Couldn't load website". I cannot find any option to reactivate the site in the dashboard. The button with the three dots doesn't do anything anymore. Maybe they removed the option to reactivate sites recently. In the past, every site had a separate login. Now there's only a dashboard which manages all sites.

    Can't say I for one ever have so far... but then again in my case we're talking of company websites/business platforms I'm creating, and with my boss they'd have a very pi**ed business customer easily lost, if they did anything like that.

    We're also primarily using WordPress at work. I've by now hooked into so many different functions with the plugins I created, I lost count ages ago. ^^
