deleted a blog but want the name back?

  1. Hey
    So I deleted my blog a few weeks ago. I wanted to start over, but I wanted to keep the same domain name. Now, when I go to create a new blog, and enter the previous domain name, it says it's taken. I've visited the site, and all it says is "The authors have deleted this blog". Can you help? Thanks!

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. I'm sorry but the answer is "no". Deleted blog URLs are not recycled here. Confirm by reading:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

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

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