Hi Joanna!

We tried to help with retrieving another Gaia victim's domain but theirs 
was not in their name so they had no recourse. As long as your domain 
isn't private, you can see the owner and admin email by entering the 
domain here:


If you are the domain owner, you should ultimately be able to get the 
domain back but it may take some time. Gaia is a top level registrar, 
right under ICANN, so you could try contacting them.


It would probably be a good idea for someone to organize a class action 
suit, then you'd have more leverage with ICANN.

This will probably take time so I do think you should register a new 
domain. We offer domain names for $12.95/year.

As far as the website, if it's an HTML site or a WordPress site with 
admin access, we should be able to retrieve it without having access to 
the Gaia control panel, and we'd be happy to host you for free for the 
first three months.
