Cancel domain mapping and registration

  1. Yesterday I purchased the $17 bundle to register and map a domain linked to my wordpress.com account.
    I have since decided that I would like to move my site onto wordpress.org using Bluehost to host it.

    My question is thus; as I am still in the 2 day cancellation period can I cancel the whole order and gain a full refund in order to re-register the domain with Bluehost?

    Thank you in advance.

    The blog I need help with is bltctenniscoaching.com.

    There is no guarantee that you will be able to repurchase the domain. You don't need to cacel it. It's yours and your can use it on your WordPress.org install. This is what I suggest that you read:

    If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#update-nameservers

  3. Sounds like we have the same problem! Thanks for the sollution time thief!

  4. You're welcome.

  5. I want to cancel it as Bluehost are offering a free domain for life. So I was thinking of cancelling my registration/mapping with WordPress.com and then re-registering with Bluehost.

  6. If we cancel the domain, it can take up to several weeks, and we can't guarantee that your domain will be available to you again once canceled.

    If you want to keep using your domain but you don't want to use WordPress.com anymore, you don't have to cancel it.

    Instead, you can move the domain to another site, using the Domain Administration tool under Store > Domains, at the bottom of the page.

    If you don't want this domain at all, you can cancel it for a full refund if you purchased it within the last two days.

    To cancel the domain, go to Store > Domains in your dashboard. Locate the domain you want to cancel in the list, and click on the Cancel button next to it.

    This cannot be undone, so please follow the on-screen instructions carefully before you confirm the cancellation.

  7. I cancelled my 99 $ bundle with a few hours. However no one has gotten back to me. I cannot find a contact number for your to call and confirm cancelation.

    I'll flag this thread for Staff attention. Please post the URL for the .wordpress.com blog you originally purchased the bundle for.

  9. boathead, I'm not sure why your cancellation request didn't go through.

    I have canceled and refunded your bundle as requested.
