I lost control of my website

Okay, Im new to owning my own website and I was getting started with affiliate marketing. I signed up to a site called “wealthy affiliate” which offered courses and hosting. I started a trial month with them, bought a domain from godaddy and had them hosting it. Well once my month was up I decided not to renew because the membership fees were just too high, unfortunately I did not transfer my site to a new host before cancelling the subscription and no longer have access to the API transfer code thing. Ive been in contact with the supposed owner of the site but have only received generic responses that dont solve my issue. Essentially Im told I cannot get access without renewing, i feel like my site is being held hostage. Anyways for a while when i would visit my site it would show wealthy affiliate info saying the page was down, but now it just goes to dns search. Im so lost at this point I just want to get my domain running again and be able to maintain the thing that paid for if anyone can help I would really appreciate some guidance. The website is and I now currently have ipage hosting paid for and my domain shows up in my list but no way to access it. Please help, thanks.
