My Blog Does Not Appear in Domains

    So I've made a mess of things. I let my GoDaddy WordPress hosting lapse on my site wehavebeards.com. I assume everything is gone, however, under My Blogs on WordPress (http://screencast.com/t/9B8iyhbxEWe) it shows that there are some posts, etc. But I can't access it.

    GoDaddy has nothing saved or archived. I have a local archive of the database. But I'm trying to redirect the domain name back to WordPress. But when I try to set up the mapping, I can't find my blog under DOMAINS in the store.

    My theory, and please correct my stupidity here, is that some old posts were hosted on WordPress at some point, and if I can direct the domain back to hosting on WordPress, I can access them.

    Am I way off?

    I changed the nameservers to wordpress NS in GoDaddy. But I can't complete the mapping as wehavebeards.com doesn't appear in the domains. Is that because it's already been mapped?

    The blog I need help with is wehavebeards.com.

  2. The blog you specified at wehavebeards.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. wehavebeards.com - will not appear in "Domains" until it has been domain mapped

    You need to map your existing domain name - you have done the first step with the name servers - you need to complete the steps then it will take 24 to 72 hours for the changes to reach the far corners of the internet - changes do however start after a few hours:

    If you were on Godaddy then no content was saved here unless you have an old blog here that had the same content -

    Did you have an old blog here? it would have been some-name.wordpress.com type of name

    If the content is not saved in some way, many times content can be retrieved from search engine cache's

  4. The screen shot might have been from a WordPress.ORG installed Dashboard - I can't tell for sure - since there are two flavors of "WordPress" and parts of them look the same it can be very difficult to tell the difference at times.

    I was not able to find your content cached in a search engine, but some of the other volunteers are much better than I at finding old content than I am - maybe they will leave a link to an archive for you and save you some work
