Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for utilizing our services.

The domain name seems to be expired. Is that one of your problems?



Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I am aware of that. What do we need to do in order to assume ownership of the site to reactivate it?
Expert:  George Sibiya replied 8 months ago.

Ok it depends. There is a variety of website hosting models from which your consultants may have chosen to host the website.

Is there any additional information that the consultants gave you when they handed over the website if they did hand it over?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Contacting the consultants now to obtain the package info.
Expert:  George Sibiya replied 8 months ago.

Ok, the most important information to find out is, with whom is the domain name

registered with among GoDaddy,, NameCheap and Network Solutions or any one if not one of these so that you can renew it with them.

The website content can then be hosted anywhere including your premises.
