As I understand it, you have a website with a .com extension. You can't just change extensions, But you can install a new wordpress with the .net or any extension you want as long as that domain (with the .net) is registered as a .net with your registrar. Example, my domains are registered with the registrar NameSecure (I've been with them for years, no reason for me to change), but all these Domains are Hosted with Hostgator. So if I want to change my sports site from a .com to a .net, I have to re-register it with my registrar and then install the now wordpress domain with the .net with hostgator. (Here's hoping that made sense)
I just entered the domain http://homeaffordabilitycalculator.com into the my URL field in my browser and I get this message:
"FOR SALE! THIS DOMAIN HAS JUST BEEN LISTED FOR SALE. Click here to inquire
" And you are right there is no content on it. And your http://homeaffordabilitycalculator.net has nothing on it but Latin phases.
So unless the site was backed up, the content is gone!
If this site was in your name, you can cross your figures and ask Hostgator if they still have a back up of the site. But if it has been a while, hostgator my now have it backed up as you see it now. I don't know how far back hostgator saves their back ups.Lesson learned
-Always have your site backed up and don't rely on the hosting company. I have test sites that I use and once I am happy, I transfer the content including images to the new site. Also if I make changes, I make them on the test site.Note
- Buy a test site (you don't care about the domain name). Then create Sub-domains on your primary test site. That way you don't need to continue buying new domains and spending money and sub-domains are FREE, at least with hostgator.Next Note
- WordPress in your Dashboard, under Tools, you can export (backup) your site/page(s)/post(s). Then imports them if something goes wrong. I haven't tested this for the reason mentioned above. but I think I will just to see if it does back up my test site.
I have posted 4 videos on how to back up and restore your website
, transfer from one website to another. Same goes for pages and posts. Here is the link to the post in this forum. http://affiliatemarketingdude.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=862
anyway I hope I didn't loss you in my reply.
