What if I Leave WA and Come Back Later?
Last Update: Feb 24, 2020
I've seen this question pop up from time to time and the answer is this:
WA has no obligation to "park" websites for former members. No other hosting company that I know of would provide such a service either. The standard practice in the hosting industry is to delete all files pretty much as soon as the money runs out.
WA's current policy (as of January 2020) is that backups of the websites will be available for restoration up to 60 days after a member leaves. What happens to my hosting if I cancel my membership at WA
Do your backups before your membership expires!
But you have to back up your website before your membership expires 'cos you won't be able to access it after that.
As I said, there is no obligation and no guarantee that a website will be accessible after it's been abandoned. If it's still here when a former member returns it should be considered a huge bonus.
Please bookmark this because the question is going to be asked again and again.
