    Hi, my website went down and I accidentally canceled with my host and didn't make sure to save the articles I had on there - does this mean they're gone forever? They were hosted on my WP blog site, so would these articles be gone forever? Is there absolutely no way of going back?

    Thanks.

    How many articles did you lose? You can always use the WayBack Machine to see if there is a snapshot of your site's articles saved on there. In the event that the WayBack Machine doesn't work, then try searching for your articles in Google (assuming they're still indexed) and access the cached copy there.

    If you don't want to do that, you can always contact the web host to see if they can be recovered.

    Do you know how I could retrieve articles from a blog that is currently going through construction? I want to be able to show employers my work but when they search online, they can see the link but not the content.

    Contact the hosting provider and see if they can retrieve them. Otherwise, do as @Zwielicht already said. And remember, always do a backup. ALWAYS!

    Yes you can check it from the archive.org or From Google caches.
    If both fails, Then go ahead and contact the webhosting because usually they do a weekly backup or monthly backup.
    In that case, you might get the DB and Site's FTP to set them up again.

    I Hope you learned your lesson now, from next time take a Weekly backup :)
