    WordPress.org doesn’t provide hosting services or accept payments of any kind. We simply develop, support, and distribute the WordPress software here, all for free, and all by volunteers.

    If you were paying “WordPress” then you were paying WordPress.com, which again are two different entities: https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_vs_WordPress.com and have support contacts at https://support.wordpress.com/

    https://laotraisla.com/ is currently a WordPress.com site, but based on https://web.archive.org/web/20170918110058/http://laotraisla.com/ it looks like as of September 18, your site was hosted with another hosting provider (not WordPress.com). It’s impossible to know who though, I can only confirm that it’s not WordPress.com based on a few common markers.

    There are some free hosting providers out there, they aren’t any good though, so I have to imagine you were paying someone. Going self-hosted like that is not an automated process. It involves paying the host (unless it’s one of those terrible free ones), setting up an account with them, and moving your content to them. So, I recommend looking back through your emails and through your credit card charges (look for recurring monthly or annual payments).

    Just to re-iterate, WordPress.org doesn’t provide hosting services or accept payments of any kind. We simply develop, support, and distribute the WordPress software here, all for free, and all by volunteers.
