    Sign up another hosting service, rebuild your site by using Archive.org history. As long as your site is up, ur ranking will still remain unchanged, act fast:D

    You can create a new hosting service but since not having any back up for recovery purposes,may be I think you will loose your ranking.
    Look for that and create a new hosting soon before loosing more traffic.

    Use a correct HTTP status code when your webserver delivers this "maintenance" page.
    I would use the code 503, as it indicates that your service is temporarily unavailable.
    You could even tell a retry after date.

    Also it'S what Google recommends in such cases of downtime. See:

    It's probably an obvious thing to say, but it's crucial that you have a backup. It's just as much your fault as it is of your hosting provider. This time the hosting provider "fucked" your data, but next time you might get hacked, or your data gets corrupted.

    Having said that, I can empathize with your frustration and I hope you do recover your website. I know it's a horrible feeling.

    Good luck, I hope you can recover everything from cache. For the future: Backup often and early, do it yourself, save your backups on some device you have physical access to.

    If you start a new website. Take a backup for every month regularly.
    Either your site can get hacked, otherwise same problem may occur.
    At that time backup will be helpful for you.
    Don't lose hope. This will be a good lesson for you.

    Try google cache to recover your data.

    I wanna thank everybody for giving me advice and wished me luck yall awsome :)

    I just moved from hosting service and made all my pages 503. Today ive learned a lesson the hard way. I think about re-code everything from scratch and learn coding with laravel framework. I don't know how long it takes, so do you guys think that i can take some time before re-launch the site. Or do i need to fix my site asap?

    Anyway i think about it.. Thank you guys again, yall awsome!

    EDIT: I have found google caching of my pages for HTML and some CSS and JS files in my recycle bin on my computer. All i have to do is now coding the back-end im thinking about learning framework or just coding it fast as possible what do you recommend?

    I recommend you can go for framework it make easier to work with complex technologies.
    Everyone can easily test and debug the code, even code that they didn't write.
    It ties together with a bunch of discrete objects/components into something more useful.
