    Before going into business with this person. I knew nothing about web hosting, payment gateways and scripts. Me and said-person created a website that sold replica items.

    He owns the domain name, and he has Magento registered to his email. The only thing in my name is HostGator and the affiliate script we purchased.

    We were looking for a payment gateway but he started fading and I have not been in contact with him for some months now. When I login to Magento there are no sales but if I cancel the HostGator hosting, the site will disappear and he will have control and I will be left with nothing.

    Is there any way I can still get back what is partially mine?

    P.S. Thanks to BHW I know that I would have to change hosts, I just don't know of any offshore/anonymous hosts, but HostGator is the only thing keeping the website on the net right now.
