How to restore lost access to the site

The modern world dictates new conditions for doing business. One of them is the creation of online platforms. Business owners create websites to sell goods and corporate portals to store information and provide convenience for their employees. Losing access to such websites means loss of profits and the possibility of data loss. Such a situation is a threat to business, so it is better to find out how to restore access to your portal in advance.

Dangerous risk for the company

Today, any corporate Internet portal is not just a site for selling company services or goods. The most important thing is that the web portal is the face of the company and its main tool for interacting with the client. Losing access not only means financial risks but also a possible loss of image and customer trust.

Every business owner can protect themselves from possible problems if they are attentive to the management of the resources and do not ignore the minimum security rules, including the following:

  • constant monitoring of resource activity;
  • ensuring the maximum level of protection and additional data encryption;
  • backing up data to a third-party resource;
  • use of cloud storage;
  • choosing a reliable hosting provider.

Please comply with these rules to avoid complete loss of access or loss of all company operating data. People often come to programmers with the following problems:

  • The login and password no longer fit the site.
  • Someone else's materials are published in the resource.
  • Access to the website is completely blocked.

Problems like this indicate that the portal has been stolen and the data altered. Sometimes, this situation can be corrected if the attackers make some mistakes.

Ways to restore access to the site

The owner can only restore their access by contacting the hosting provider. Sometimes, if the client notices their loss in time, it can be done. They need to write a letter to technical support and ask to track their domain visit history. Some hosting providers can restore their previous login and password, but this rule does not always work.

You should also note that access to the site may be closed not only due to attackers' actions. In some cases, the owner is to blame due to their carelessness. You must ensure the provider has received the money when paying to host a portal and use a domain. There are cases when the money does not reach the recipient; in such situations, the site owner receives letters about the unsuccessful payment. If the provider doesn't see your payment on time, they can cut off your access and sell the domain to another user.

In such cases, you will not be able to return your unique name and platform. However, it is possible to transfer the portal to a new domain while preserving all data. To carry out this procedure, you also need to contact your hosting provider's support and settle all the nuances. We strongly advise you to promptly check the site's functionality and all messages to avoid such problems.

Ways to avoid problems accessing the site

As you can see, returning access to the site depends solely on the responsiveness of the hosting provider. Therefore, it is better to avoid possible problems using proven tips:

  1. Create only complex passwords that cannot be guessed. You must select new data that is not used on other sites or emails.
  2. Don't be lazy about regularly backing up your data to other resources so that you don't lose important, up-to-date information.
  3. Change access to the site after employees who know the data are fired.
  4. Check your email associated with the site regularly and promptly so as not to miss important alerts and notifications.
  5. Carefully monitor the payment process or set up automatic debiting to pay for the site. This way, you can be sure that the payment will not be lost and that your portal will be paid on time.

The best solution to a problem is to prevent it. Follow simple but effective rules, and choose only trusted hosting providers.
