How to Restore Content from an Expired WordPress Hosting Account

Do you have an expired wordpress hosting account that you need to restore from? If so, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we will teach you how to restore content from an expired hosting account. This guide will not include instructions on how to install a new wordpress installation, as we assume that you already have a functional copy installed on your server.

Find The Right Backup Solution

When choosing a backup solution, you have a variety of different factors to consider. First, make sure that the solution you choose is compatible with your operating system. For example, if you are using Windows, then make sure that the solution you choose is a native Windows application and not a cross-platform solution. Also, consider how you want to restore the files, whether you want to do so locally or remotely. If you are doing so remotely, then make sure that the solution you choose handles file transfers effectively and quickly.

Restore From Local Backup

The first step in restoring content from an expired wordpress hosting account is to make a local backup of your website. To do this, you have two options. You can either use your web browser to navigate to the directory where your WordPress files are stored and copy them to another location or you can use an instant-backup solution, such as WinSCP or Dr. FTP. The first method is recommended as it is easier to navigate to the directory where your content is stored and copy it to another location, without having to install additional applications. Once the backup is complete, you can move on to the next step.

Restore From Remote Backup

The next step is to restore the content from the remote backup you just made. To do this, you have two options. You can either use your web browser to connect to your server and upload the backup file or you can use an application-specific backup solution, such as Scalr or Arq. The advantage of using an application-specific solution is that you can restore the content directly from the app without having to connect to your server via web browser. In either case, after you have uploaded the backup files, you can test your restoration steps by visiting your site in either incognito mode or a private browsing session. If all tests are successful, then you can be sure that your content is restored successfully.

Manage Expired Hosting Accounts

The last step in this process is to reactivate your hosting account. To do this, you have two options. You can either contact the web host you used to store your website’s content and ask them to provide you with a refund, or you can use a service, such as Cloudwards.com to manage your expired hosting accounts for you. The advantage of using an online service, such as Cloudwards, is that you can handle all the account reactivation from a single location. Plus, you can get the benefits of any additional features they offer, such as free domain privacy, free backups, etc.

In either case, make sure to follow the instructions provided by your web host to complete the account reactivation process. Once you have done so, you can be sure that your content is restored and stored safely on their servers. From here, you can proceed to the next step and begin the process over again.
