Recently our site was down due to an issue with the registrar, they forgot to renew so we had a week where users could not even resolve the host name. Curiously during this time I still show data in the dashboard, how is this possible when none of the site was accessible?

Hi Simon,

could be referrer spam - check your Acquisition > All Traffic > Referrals report if there are any strange domains that don't actually link to your website.
