    I had a pretty busy car remapping and BMW modifying website, that I stupidly lost the content of as I didn't renew the hosting package - duh.

    Hosting company have now deleted all the files. Oops.

    Not the end of the world, as I have moved onwards and upwards!

    I still have the domain, and around 900 decent incoming links from various BMW websites and directories from around the world, many from DIY guides that I had created.

    What's my best way of easily monetizing the URL?

    Can't imagine a simple domain parking page will do anything, but what are my options?

    why not rebuild what you had? if you was doing well with the site, it will grow again and put some adsense or something on there to bring money in again?

    go see if your website was listed in the internet archive - goog wayback machine - put your homepage back up for starters - good luck

    Sadly not in Wayback Machine - already hoped for that!

    Don't have the time or inclination anymore to rebuild it - just hoped there might be an Adsense or similar one page quickie solution that might make me a couple of quid every now and then

    Maybe throw up a site quickly to maintain the traffic,
    and then sell it.
