Deleted blog name is taken

  1. I deleted my blog yesterday. I want to make a new blog with the same name but it says that the name is taken. Is there a way to create a blog with the same name after it has been deleted?

  2. No, there isn't. That is why there are all those warnings about how permanent the deletion is, and the email confirmation. Neither you nor anyone else can ever use that name again.

  3. I'm sorry but reclaiming a deleted blog URL is not possible. It takes bypassing 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.

  5. Sorry it wasn't what you wanted to hear. You're welcome.
