    restoring old website
    I had my own website but for whatever reason the site(doodlekit) that was hosting it didn’t restore it…my stuff was through wordpress as well. But when I cancelled the site on doodlekit, I could not gain access to my information on wordpress. I have tried to use my email address because it is still register but it will not let me log on and when I type in the url it does not come up either. Is there anyway that my posts were backed up and I can transfer them to a new site?

    The blog I need help with is justjeaninenicoledotcom.wordpress.com.

    Is the the blog in question?
    http://doodlekit.wordpress.com/
    If so this is the log-in link http://doodlekit.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog to access it.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    I did use doodlekit for my website and they mapped everything to wordpress, but when I deleted the website through doodlekit it will not show up here on wordpress. But when I just tried to register the domain name through wordpress, it says that the website is already mapped through wordpress. It will not let me login, but when I tried to do a new blog with my email address it says that the address is already registered. I changed the password and everything and still no luck

    What is the full URL (address) of the site or sites you need help with?

    Until we get that we can not give you accurate help

    OK – this is past confusing to me – I have flagged this for the staff – .justjeaninenicole.com dumps me over on Doodle Kit with a note that nothing is here – but a Google search in the cache shows mapping to a WordPress.COM blog with the pictures here – http://justjeaninenicole.wordpress.com/ – the link to the base picture from the cache http://justjeaninenicole.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/warning_sexually_active_womens_dark_t_shirt-rddcfcb2e211648c582965c42d2462fa6_f0czy_512.jpg still works fine –

    there is also domain mapping for .justjeaninenicole.com

    So maybe the staff can sort it out

    The good news is you old content is probably safe – but just not reachable by us mere mortals at this point

    And this should be the log-in for the lost blog –

    https://justjeaninenicole.wordpress.com/wp-login.php

    Try going to your Registrar and fixing the name servers to here

    It sounds like your doodlekit hosts failed you and didn’t make any backups. That you also have an account here that uses WordPress doesn’t mean the accounts or blogs were connected in any way at all.

    justjeaninenicole.com was never a WordPress.com blog, so you’ll need to contact your hosting provider about this.

    Actually, I apologize, I had a typo when looking up the domain.

    That domain was at one point mapped to justjeaninenicole.wordpress.com.

    If you want to direct the domain back to us, you’ll need to change the name servers through your registrar to:

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    through the registrar on wordpress or on doodlekit. I know longer have the account through doodlekit. I wanted to just do the domain through wordpress if I could. And hopefully my material is still available.

    The domain is registered through Doodlekit, so you’ll need to contact them.
