deleting a blog

  1. I'm trying to work on a new wp blog, but I keep being redirected to my defunct site, http://www.question-driven.com. I tried logging out, but am turned back. I tried deleting the site, but I am directed to a page with two options, neither of which delete the site. What can I do?

    The blog I need help with is question-driven.com.

  2. The issue appears to be that question-driven.com is an expired domain name. You will need to register it again in order to use it.

    To do so, log into your WordPress.com site's dashboard, click on Store-->Domains, enter question-driven.com in the "add a domain" box and click the "add domain" button. Then simply follow the instructions that appear to register your domain.

    Let me know if you have any trouble.

  3. Rootjosh,
    thanks for responding, but you were off base. Yes, it's expired; so I want to delete the remains of the dashboard in order to start a new life with a new url and a new website. I am surprised that deleting a website is so difficult. The wp system says oh, you are this computer, so you must want to connect with question-driven, so that's where we will direct you. It's hair-pulling time.

  4. Hmmm, I am not having any trouble connecting directly with http://questiondriven.wordpress.com/.

    Perhaps it is a cache issue. You can try either clearing your cache, using a different browser, or loading the page and then holding the shift key while you click reload/refresh.

    It may be easier to just use a direct link to your WordPress.com site's dashboard:

    http://questiondriven.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    To delete your WordPress.com site, there are options and instructions for doing so here:
