Attorney Eric’s old developer & website host disappeared. His domain had expired and his email account stopped working altogether. Luckily we had access to his domain account. We moved Eric’s html website to a new host and moved his content to a responsive WordPress theme (The sidebar uses our featured-image-pro plugin).
We also activated his email account.
Designers and developers frequently go missing. We believe that hosts and domains should always be accessible by the user so that if the user hires new developers and designers, sites can be accessed when it’s necessary. This means that passwords should be easy to retrieve and all accounts should be attached to an alternative email address (like gmail) that is not related to the domain. You can not retrieve emails from an email address when the domain has expired.
