Can I access and redirect my domain name after I deleted my blog?

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if someone might be able to help me.

    I bought the domain name http://www.richardhalford.com for my WordPress.com blog. But then I got totally into WordPress and started building themes and templates and wanted to host my my own blog. I have now set up a WordPress installation with bluehost and set my domain name as richardhalford.com. I then thought I should delete my site on WordPress.com so as not to get things confused.

    And that is where I think I have gone wrong. I deleted my blog which was mapped to richardhalford.com and now I can't access my domain name through WordPress - Options - Domains as per the FAQ instructions. And the domain name manager site was only accessable through the WordPress interface.

    What can I do to access my domain name and release it to BlueHost - ie get the release code. Any help would be immensely appreciated. My site and domain name are integral to my job hunting and I need gainful employment ... urgently

    Many thanks in advance

    Richard

  9. Because if you want to answer questions on the forum then I thought you would like to know that many people ask questions that are already answered in the FAQs, forum searchbox and the Beginner's Guide. :)

    If you read up on them you can be sure to have the correct answers almost all of the time and to be able to answer the questions asked very quickly.
