Hello I have a office365 SMALL BUSINESS tenant.

I have deleted a site, but I need to recover.

I have read this. to recover:

Navigate to the SharePoint Online Administration Center page.
On the ribbon, click Recycle Bin.
In the Recycle Bin, select the check box next to the site collection that you want to restore.
On the ribbon, click Restore Deleted Items.

But I don't now how navigate to SharePoint Online Administration Center page, I have the office365 Small Business, so maybe some things are different from Enterprise version.

Any help.

    See the following TechNet article on how to utilize the SharePoint Online Administrator Portal. Note, it also includes a video walkthrough -

    Your portal URL should be https://[WebAppName]/o365admin

    According to windows here are some options. it does seem like small business is sligtly more limited

    First I 'd like to confirm that you are using the Office 365 pre-upgrade P1 plan. You can refer to the article below to check it:

    If so, please refer to the following steps to check if you can restore it:
    1. Log into the Recycle Bin with your logon name and password.
    2. If the site is there, please select it and click “Restore Selection” to check if the site can be restored.

    If the site couldn’t be found in the Recycle Bin, you have to recreate the Team Site, but recreating the Team Site does not recover any data lost when the Team Site was deleted. The following video shows the detailed steps:

    Thanks Brad, when I navigate mu sharepoint this is the Url   but if I try I get "page nor found"

    Thanks M.Jayme, the point 1 get --> Am I using Office 365 after the service upgrade?  --> The service upgrade is complete, so everyone is now using Office 365 after the service upgrade.
    In the point 2, yes I can access to the Recycle bin and there isn't my deleted site, and the video has the link broken.
    But, Are you sure I lost the data, there isn't any way to recover my site?

    Thanks both.

    I did a bit of reading and it seems like sharepoint will not allow you to restore site if you accidentally deleted the root site. If you deleted a team site or something else it should be recoverable with the recycling bin. However, if it is the root (main site) then you have to recreate it

    FYI tsaico

    There is a grey footer bar at the bottom of every question which has a 'Moniotor' option that will allow you to do just that without adding anything. I learnt this the other day - passing on the knowledge!

    I asked to Microsoft and They told me that in the small business there isn't admin panel and I have to contact then to solver this issue.

    Thanks everybody.
