    switch wordpress hosting from an expired domain to a new domain

    I let one of my domains expire that i am currently paying for hosting for. I purchased a new domain and would like to use that hosting on this new domain.


    I can not get to the WP Admin log in screen since the domain is expired.  Is my only solution to renew the domain? or is there a work around? I spent a pretty penny on this new domain and services for it. I would hate to have to invest more money.


    Please help!  This all lives on GoDaddy no other host providers.
