"Authors have deleted site" I want it, not available

  1. I am looking for a specific wordpress domain, but it says taken when I type it in the "Blog Address" it says it is taken. So I go to the [blognameIwant].wordpress.com and it says "[blognameIwant] is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site." Can I contact WordPress and gain control of this domain? Is no one allowed to own it?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. That's not possible. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    However, you can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.

  3. Alright I figured that was the case. Luckily I have a perfectly suitable fallback that's not taken. Thanks!

  4. You're welcome and best wishes.
