I let my website expire this summer and I’d like to renew hosting (along with my domain name) with Dreamhost now that I can afford it, and I’m wondering if any of my website data would have been stored in Dreamhost servers? I thought I’d backed it all up, but 3 computers later and that ambiguously named .tar.gz file is gooooooooone. I’m praying that since it’s been less than a year, maaaaaaaybe it’s still there hidden away in the depths of Hades, just waiting to be plucked back from obscurity and renewed to full glory in the public eye.
If it IS gone (and I have the sneaking suspicious that it is, alas, lost forever), I’d be better off just opening a new account elsewhere altogether to get a better deal. But I’m willing to pay more to renew and not have to do TOO much damage control to have my website back up.

Also, sorry if this is the wrong area, it’s sort of an ambidextrous multitasker of a topic.
