    I hope someone can help us out! We had a web company develop a lawn web site two years ago. We got too busy and did not renew a year ago. The company is out of Texas I believe and we would like to get the site going again. I wish I could find this person to help us out. Thanks

    oh crap. Sorry... the first thing you need to do is goto godaddy.com and buy that domain name for like ten bucks. Some punk might grab it up to flip it to you now that you posted it. I'll see if I can find anything

    Thanks for info, just did it was still available. they try to sell you the moon. I did not know how much to buy. They give you ten site names to buy For starters I just bought one. should I buy more and pay to advertise through them. Also, what about a host? Use them or someone else? I still need to get in contact with the web developer and get the copy of our site.

    I was told it is better to use a separate company for hosting. I went with bluehost.com

    If you do a search for "top hosts" they will be on top of the list and you can take advantage of a good deal.

    If you don't locate your web designer and need to start from scratch.. I highly recommend the guy who did mine. Very reasonable and easy to work with.

    Good luck...

    Dude, you are lucky. Most active domains that expire get snatched up within a day. Damn SEO vultures.
    Don't you have a backup of your website?

    What's wrong with godaddy hosting? They are a couple bucks a month cheaper than bluehost.
