How can I contact a domain owner?

  1. How can I have someone transfer their domain to me? I found a domain name that I would like to use and it has been inactive for 2 years - thelongwayhome.com I wanted to contact the domain owner to see if they will transfer the domain to me.

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

    There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

    If you are not successful, 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.
