If your hosted site has not been restored yet, you can fill out a form and request it. And about 98% of all the sites have not been restored as of today. This includes homepages, freepages, and gen web sites of all types.
How do you know if your site has been restored?
If your site is ~xyz123 go to http://sites.rootsweb.com/~xyz123
If your site is there, you can go to Request Hosted Site Password and request your password be reset. You will also be agreeing to Terms of Service. Even if you have an old password or a mailing list password, you need to do this, or you won’t be able to access your count.
If you don’t see your site — it hasn’t been restored yet.
How do I ask for my site to be restored?
If you want it back, go to: Restore RootsWeb Hosted Website form and fill it out. Make your best guesses if you don’t know all the information.
Will restoration be immediate?
NO! It will take 2 to 4 weeks. Everything has to be scanned and moved to a new server.
Will you get an email saying we are working on it?
No. We will email you if we can’t find it. We will email you when it is back. Or check the url. (see above)
My old URL was different
We will be bringing back the old types of URLs. But our first goal is to reunite you with your content as soon as we can.
