Deleted wordpress blog address by mistake. Can I get it back?

  1. Deleted wordpress blog address by mistake. Can I get it back? It was my address...didn't get a chance to make any entries... in it yet.

    Thank you

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

  2. pencilandcoffee.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog.

    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.

  3. re: http://mentalcatalyst.wordpress.com/
    By default your front page displays all your posts and you have not published any posts. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of your blog appeared because you deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

  4. Hi there,

    Timethief is right - we can't retrieve a blog that's been deleted. Can you confirm the URL? I do see the blog here: http://mentalcatalyst.wordpress.com/

    Cheers!

  5. Hi!
    Thank you for helping me out. I am new here (clearly). The blog that I was trying to get back is pencilandcoffee.wordpress.com. If I can't get it back its fine... I was trying out different names before I embarked on this. Clearly, didn't realize the delete meant it will no longer EVER be available again ..not even to the person that made it at first. hah. =)

    Lesson learned.

  6. You can always use the Custom Domain upgrade to get pencilandcoffee.com for $18 a year. It's a good domain, you should think about it. I don't advise paid upgrades often, but in this case it's a great brand and a good price to reserve it.

  7. Hi Reebs,

    A custom domain may indeed be an excellent option for you. You can read more about domains here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    If you'd like to attach one to your current blog, you can! Just go to your Dashboard > Store > Domains and type in the domain you'd like to use (looks like pencilandcoffee.com) and follow the steps.

    Let me know if you need any additional help, if you decide to go this route!

  8. Hey guys,
    Thank you everyone for helping my blog naive self out on this. I have a lot to learn. =)

    What is a great brand, raincoaster? the .com?

  9. Hi again Reebs,

    I can't speak for Raincoaster, but in my opinion, the domain name pencilandcoffee.com is exactly that: a great brand. I would guess that was what was intended :)
