My blog droplet (running Ghost) was deleted yesterday over a $13.03. When I noticed, I rushed on to pay the bill. I paid. Now, my blog is gone. Is there any way to retrieve it all? I had a good chunk of info posted there and I at least want to transfer my content to another droplet.

Please help.

Hey @GregThompsonJr,

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.

Please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your account issue! :)

Hope that helps!

Where is the support contact page? The link you replied with led me to a self-troubleshooting page that has a bunch of links. Can you share a link to the actual contact form or chat module?
