Help with website password

I'm working for a company with a website hosted in Canada, and their old website hosted in China. They'd like to use the old URL to forward to the new site, but have lost the username and password for the old site.

Is it possible to regain control of this site?

SIW might show it under secrets.

Sorry, SIW???

Sorry, just looked it up myself. I'm on a MAC, and have never acessed the website in the past.

It shows some saved passwords and usernames but not all.Worth a try I suppose.

You would need to contact their hosting company in China to get access to the website.

If there is no current hosting arrangement, you would need to set up a new one before you could arrange any web-forwarding.
