    Well, my hosting company decided to shut down without informing their users. I didn't download a backup and now I lost all of my files and databases, everything!!! I heard that there's a way to restore the files if it was a cPanel server, so I'm asking you guys, is it true? And sorry if I posted in the wrong forum.
    Thanks.

    Did you download a full website backup while your account was still functional?

    If not, you will have to contact your defunct web host and see if they can get you the backup files.

    Good Luck!

    No, I don't have a backup. I contacted them, but I never got any reply. :(

    If they setup the server to backup accounts, then they would have a backup, but if they won't respond, I'm sorry to say your out of luck :(

    What was the name of the shameful host?

    Maybe you can use this tool to help if available for your website: http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

    It won't provide data, but just a visual aid to make things look as they once were.

    Sorry!
