Deleted Blog

  1. I deleted an old blog of mine, but the domain name is still not available. When I try to visit that domain it says "blog has been deleted by author." Shouldn't the domain name be available now?

  2. I'm sorry but that is not possible. It takes surpassing 3 warnings that blog deletion is irreversible and clicking a confirmation link in an email to delete a blog for good reason ie. deleted blog URLs are not recycled.

    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.
