    Hi,

    I created a wordpress based site back in 2005, I forgot the URL to the site. Is there anyway to look this information up? I'd like to restart my blog. If I get the URL I might be able to figure out where it was hosted also!

    Thank you!

    If you had any posts or pages, you might try a google search for something specific from one or the other.

    Do a WHOIS search on the domain name and check the nameservers. This will tell you where it's hosted. But, have you been paying the bill to whatever hosting company you may or may not have been using? If not, your blog is likely "poof"

    I wish I had these kinds of problems, "I forgot where I put my blog..."

    Sorry, I'm not trying to make fun of you, but good grief man, "just say no", okay?

    What geisha said - if you had it hosted somewhere, you've been paying a hosting bill. Most hosting providers tell you what URL you're paying for when you send an invoice.

    However, if you haven't been paying for hosting, chances are, the account doesn't exist anymore, and the site is long gone.

    I actually found the URL and I've e-mailed my host to provide me login details so waiting to hear from them. Thanks!

    This is so surreal.

    So, you own the domain, right? And when you found the url how exactly did you find the host? Are you using The Force?
