Lost access to several Google accounts after domain used for login emails expired 0 Recommended Answers 29 Replies 9 Upvotes

I lost access to several Google accounts after I mistakenly left a domain name expire last year. The domain name has now been snatched up by a domain reselling company which will only sell it for an exorbitant sum of money.
The trouble is that the login emails for the Google accounts in question were all on this domain name. When I try to login to the Google accounts in question, even though I do know what the login email addresses and passwords were, it's trying to send verification codes to the login emails before letting me in (it says my device is unrecognized). I can't check the login emails to access the codes since the domain is no longer in my control.
Tried going through the recovery process (putting in month and date account opened etc.) and at the end of it, it just says that it was unable to verify I own the accounts in question.
What can I do? There was no alternate email on these accounts, or phone number etc.? I also no longer have the same IP address I likely logged in from to these accounts last time I logged in to them. What I do know for certain are the login emails and the passwords.
