Change URL

    I want to change my URL address and it says the site already exsists but I checked and it does not. I would like to change it to retailtherapy.wordpress.com which does no longer exist, it says it was deleted by the authors. Is there a way I can change mine to this?

    The blog I need help with is chelseavoss6.wordpress.com.

  2. Sorry but that's not possible. There is no way to recover the URL you deleted because there is no recycling of deleted blog URLs here at WordPress.com. This prevents the scenario of someone impersonating the blogger who originally had the deleted URL after they deleted it.

    There are 3 warning of this given prior to blog deletion and then a confirmation link in an email is sent, and the blog is not deleted until that link is clicked. That prevents accidental deletions by insuring everyone who deletes a blog has had lots of previous warnings that what they are doing is irreversible.

    Confirm by reading http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/ and

    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.
