    You have deleted the site only or the database as well ?

    What is your hosting ?

    Do they offer backup on your plan ?

    If they offer backup you better of asking them to restore your latest backup.

    you need to talk with your hosting provider if you deleted your side, they should have a backup but they might ask you for some money

    Hostgator policy states that you need to pay 15$ per backup restore unless you have your own backups.

    I recommend you to make your own backups on your control panel from hostgator besides that you will need them to restore your old backups

    Here is the simplest way:
    Login to your hostgator CPanel. Go to File Manager -> Select all the files and folder, then click on "Archive" button either by right clicking on the files or by clicking the button on the top. Download that file..

    For DB, go back to the cpanel front page->go to phpmyadmin Click on the database name in the left panel-> then click on export button on top-> just leave the values to default->Click Go
    P.S. If your database size is big, then you might need a backup script to do this. I can do it for you for a nominal charge if you are interested ( i am a WP specialist)... Contact me if the steps above doesn't solve your problem..

    Well it depends on your taste. I prefer doing everything manually( i actually use custom backup scripts and setup cron jobs to get it done automatically) so that I have an idea what is getting backed up and what not. I actually never looked at the backup module in CPanel :p
    Sorry I did not get your point. Can't you find the menus that i mentioned?

    Oops then you are in trouble. Ask your hosting provider as previous posters suggested. I don't think you'll get the backup for free..
