    I am hoping this is not true – I accidentally let my domain name expire, renewed it right away. But now my blog name says it has been deleted.
    I hope and pray this is not true – as my daughter has spent a year building it. The blog in question is:
    http://littlehouseofamericangirl.wordpress.com
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you. There is no domain mapping upgrade for littlehouseofamericangirl.com. I tagged this thread for Staff help. Please subscribe to it and read this while waiting > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-expiration/

    I actually registered it with godaddy. I am hosting it myself.

    If you registered it the URL with godaddy and are self hosting on a WordPress.ORG install and you did not purchase a domain mapping upgrade from WordPress.COM to map from http://littlehouseofamericangirl.wordpress.com/ to http://littlehouseofamericangirl.com then this is not the correct support forum for you.

    Please clarify.

    We provide support only for blogs being hosted WordPress.COM and not for WordPress.ORG software installs. You are posting to the wrong support forum. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate, have different log-ins and run different versions of some themes with same names. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

    I am so sorry. I designed it in Artisteer. I guess it must have been WordPress.org, then? All i know is that her blog is gone and I have no idea how or why, or how to get it back.
    Where can I get help with this?

    You need to post to the correct support forum.

    We cannot help your here with this site http://littlehouseofamericangirl.com/ because WordPress.COM does not host that site.

    Most hosts have a “one click install” of the WordPress.ORG software so you don’t need to download it and go through that hassle –

    As @TT has noted you need to make friends at WordPress.ORG – also contact your host and ask them for help, maybe your content is on a server somewhere – but speed is very important – some hosts have a very short time before they purge old backups

    Thanks for your advice. I posted in the WordPress.org support forum.
    Nobody is replying so far. Can you do my a favor and try going to littlehouseofamericangirl.com?
    None of our computers can access, nor our mobile devices. But my daughter’s friends say they can see it just fine.

    I can access the site. You need to heed what auxclass stated above and not mess around. by posting here where we cannot provide help.
