Can I regiter a domain name of a blog that has been deleted?

  1. I want to start a blog called "**********.wordpress.com".
    When I go in to register a new blog it says it's not available.
    When I open my browser and type the address (www.playinghouse.wordpres.com) in, it goes to a wordpress site and says:
    "**********.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog."

    If a user has deleted a blog, can I not register it's domain name?

    Please advise.

    Thank you,
    Monica

  2. I’m sorry, we do not reuse or reassign deleted blog names on WordPress.com. You will need to select a different blog name. Keep in mind we also offer an upgrade for custom domain names and you can use any WordPress.com blog URL underneath a custom domain.
