Imagine this: your company has a website, and everything seems to be running smoothly. Then, one day, you try to access your site, and it's gone. Panic sets in as you realize your online presence has vanished, potentially affecting your business operations and customer engagement.

If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, don't worry—you're not alone, and there are steps you can take to address this issue. In this blog post, we'll walk you through what to do when your leased website disappears, from immediate actions to long-term solutions, ensuring you can get your digital presence back on track and minimize any negative impact on your business.

Why did it disappear?

Great question! In some instances, we have found that websites or internet agencies that service Midland, Texas will lease a website to you. This means that when you terminate a contract with them, they immediately remove your website. If you have found yourself in a situation where you need to discontinue working with an agency that leased you a website, ask them these questions before it's do late.

  • Domain hosting - This is your "www" address. Ask if you as the client own the domain. If not, will they transfer the ownership to you?

  • Timeline - How long will the website still be live if you cancel today?

  • Content- Will you receive a copy of the existing content that is on your site?
