    I use free hostia (mistake I wont do that again), and dont know the username or pass to my old account, and when I tried to contact them, they said that they have no proof that it is me. Can I just buy it back from myself somehow? do I just have to wait until it expires?

    ;) maybe you could blackmail yourself and force yourself to sell it to you.

    I would contact them and see if they will resend the welcome email to you. Do you still have access to the email that you used to sign up with?

    If not might be easier just to start again. Or see if you can transfer the domain out and hope there is not a domain lock on it.

    If your photo ID matches the whois info they should be able to create a new login & password.
    I would definitely contact a supervisor instead of the normal cs person.
    Good luck.
