Demapping a domain name

  1. I have a custom domain mapped to a previous wordpress domain that I need mapped to a different blog.

    peacecorpsedotorg.wordpress.com - currently has...
    peacecorpse.co - mapped to it. I need to overwrite...
    peacecorpsedotco.wordpress.com - with the custom...
    peacecorpse.co - domain. I cannot do this as I have no way to demap it from...
    peacecorpsedotorg.wordpress.com

    Once this is done, I wish to demap...
    peacecorpsedotco.wordpress.com - from...
    peacecorpse.co - as I wish to exclusively utilize the custom domain.

    Additionally, I wish to permanently delete my blog...
    peacecorpsedotorg.wordpress.com - as it was created through error while trying to create...
    peacecorpse.co

    Thank you

    The blog I need help with is peacecorpse.co.

  2. "Sorry but peacecorpse.co is already mapped to a WordPress.com blog."

    This display needs an option to edit the existing map.

  3. Im experiencing the same issue and also do not have login info for the account to which its mapped to. Help?

  4. @thecurbep
    Well what is the domain URL?
    What is the underlying .wordpress.com URL that domain is currently being mapped from?
    And which .wordpress.com blog URL do your want the domain URL to be moved to?

    I'm asking because this blog linked to your username is devoid of any blogger created content http://thecurbep.wordpress.com/ and we cannot help anyone who does not provide relevant information so we have something substantive to work with.

  5. i need -- peacecorpse.co -- unmapped from -- peacecorpsedotorg.wordpress.com

    then i need to replace -- peacecorpsedotco.wordpress.com -- with -- peacecorpse.co

  6. i would actually like to demap my domain -- peacecorpse.co -- from WordPress all together as i am very unhappy with this service.

  7. @timethief
    how can i get a staff member here to smooth this out for me?

  8. not a clue what demap is - but why don't you just transfer the domain mapping upgrades yourself since your instructions are real confusing

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-upgrades/#transferring-upgrades

  9. demap - to undo mapping (as it to disassociate the domain name from the wordpress dns redirection)

    transfering the domain is not what i wished to achive, but thank you for pointing out the upgrades tab. because of this, i was able to find 'refund domain' button.

    now what i need is the 'refund premium trial' to ensure that this service does not "renewed automatically in 12 days on August 22, 2014".

    following this, i need to delete my wordpress account and have all of my information and blogs wiped.

    Can I get an official staff member to review and take action upon these requests?

  10. find *the 'refund button'

    also, the 'cancel' button under the premium trial is not cancelling anything.

  11. when you transfer domain mapping from one blog to another, the blog that the upgrade is transferred from no longer has an upgrade on it so nothing associated with it - probably what you want to do

    accounts are forever here but you can remove all your personal info and let the account sit - that is to protect you so nobody can take the your old account name and make like you

  12. WORDPRESS STAFF

    I am in refund limbo with my domain name. I purchased it and have attempted to refund my domain less than 48 hours after purchase, but 24 hours after I tried to refund it, I still get a 'refund pending' status. I NEED A CONFIRMATION AND RECEIPT A.S.A.P. THAT I HAVE MY $33 BACK IN MY ACCOUNT BEFORE 48 HOURS IS UP. I HAVE DONE MY PART.

    Additionally, I need to cancel my premium upgrade trial period so I won't be charged $99 on August 20th. I have clicked 'cancel' and left messages several time and once again, 24 hours after doing this I still am under the premium trial period. I NEED A CONFIRMATION THAT I NO LONGER AM USING A TRIAL PERIOD AND WILL NOT BE CHARGED UPON EXPIRATION.

  13. The 48 hour cut off for the domain I am trying to refund is one hour away. I am still stuck with a "Status: Cancellation Pending" screen. I need a recipe emailed to me within this time frame, or a GUARANTEE from @Wordpress that I will receive the amount in which I paid for the domain IN FULL upon cancellation completion. I don't think it's too much to ask to have these needs met within the next hour.

    Once again, I cannot cancel my premium trial and refuse to pay $99 upon the trial's completion.

    Can I get a hand from a staff member?? @auxclass @timethief

  14. *a receipt emailed

    This is ridiculous. I'm notifying my bank to revoke any WordPress bill going towards my account and send the statement right back to them.

    This 'community-based customer service' is worse than a cell providers over-the-phone customer service. At Least there you will be guaranteed to ACTUALLY GET AHOLD OF SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP YOU.

  15. So, I can help you with all/any of this. We can switch your domain mapping to the other site or cancel it all together.

    Given that you seem unhappy with WordPress.com, I'm going to operate under the impression that you would like a refund.

    Just to clarify, if you want to cancel your domain peacecorpse.co it can take up to several weeks for our domain registrar to release the domain, and it may not choose to do so. We can't guarantee that your domain will ever be available to you again once canceled. If you have any intention of using peacecorpse.co again in the future, I suggest that you do not choose to cancel and instead use these instructions to point your domain to a new webhost:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/change-name-servers/

    Please confirm that you understand and want to cancel your domain. Once you have done so, I will cancel it, process the refund and remove the upgrade from your account.

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

  16. Additionally, I need to cancel my premium upgrade trial period so I won't be charged $99 on August 20th. I have clicked 'cancel' and left messages several time and once again, 24 hours after doing this I still am under the premium trial period. I NEED A CONFIRMATION THAT I NO LONGER AM USING A TRIAL PERIOD AND WILL NOT BE CHARGED UPON EXPIRATION.

    I have canceled the trial for you.

  17. THANK YOU SO MUCH @rootjosh, I truly appreciate your help.

    Yes, I would still like to cancel the domain, wait a couple weeks for the refund to show up, and take the risk of never having the domain be available again.

  18. I have canceled the domain and processed the refund.

    Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
