Finding historical data for a domain

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am hoping I can find some (even limited) analytics information about a domain from before I launched my new website just over a year ago in April (at which time I connected Google Analytics). Is this possible?


I do not know for sure if the domain was registered to a different analytics account, but if it was, would that account still be active and would I be able to access the data somehow? 


If not, is this data collected and is there a way for me to get access to it now? I am looking at going back less than five years. 


Thank you,

Hi Erica,

unfortunately, unless you have a way of getting in touch with whomever had access to an earlier account (assuming there was one), there is no way to get that kind of historical data.
