Looking for a blog/programming/intellectual property expert who can retrieve the presumably lost data from my old personal blog, whose domain had expired over a year ago. Quite frankly I'm not sure if the data/blog posts are even still intact, kept in the old server somewhere. However I've spent at least 3 years from 2012-2015 writing blog posts that meant a lot to me and my readers, until I lost everything. I've been unable to write anything since, and I would really appreciate anyone who could help me 1. retrieve my old blog posts, or 2. tell me at least for sure what had happened to them.
I had purchased a private domain and built a personal Wordpress blog that I had written regularly through 2012-2015. However in early 2015, I think my blog had been hacked or had been affected by some kind of malware, which lead Arvixe, a cheap web hosting provider, to arbitrarily shut down my blog (because apparently it was sending out spam emails).
I've written emails to Arvixe demanding them to restore my blog immediately, but instead they had asked me to fix the malware problem first, which I had no idea how. To make things worse, while I was busy with day to day life and failed to address the issue immediately, my purchased domain had expired and the blog is now completely gone.
Up until that point I had viewership of over 600,000 views and a good following in South Korea (I'm Korean Canadian who'd been writing blog posts targeted to South Koreans). I love writing and I would like to get back to writing blogs, only that I've been traumatized from my previous experience and unable to move on.
The only silver lining is that I emailed Arvixe again in November 2015, and they said although my domain has expired, my files were still intact in their server at the time. They asked me to check my files via FTP, but I have close to zero knowledge in programming and have no idea how the web hosting/servers/domains work. So if anyone can please help me retrieve at least the old blog posts/data from my blog, I would much appreciate it.
