I had developed a magento store for a friend but unfortunately was stuck with the dreaded hosting that is Network Solutions.  An older version had been working for us (albeit not well) but yesterday it finally stopped working.  I urged them to change but they have a plan through till 2012. 

Based on my own stupidity I dont know if I did a product backup very recently. I suppose my question is if I cant get into the admin section of this website is there anyway I can get a backup of the ecommerce store?  Is it possible to make a backup from the database tables and implement it from that into a new host? Or am I totally hooped and have to enter products manually once more if I transfer it to my host temporarily?

You can download all tables from the database and import them into new one.
Do not forget to clear the cache and change URL’s in the `core_config_data` table.
