I deleted my blog & cannot access or re-build my website

  1. Hi, I own the domain allegrasleep.com and it is still pointed at wordpress. But I deleted my wordpress blog. I want to re-build my website on wordpress, but it wont let me get started (or access it!). It says that my site already exists. (BUT IT DOESN'T!!)

    HELP!

    Thanks.

  2. allegrasleep.wordpress.com is no longer available.

    The authors have deleted this site.

    Once a site has been deleted the name is gone forever.

    Since you have domain mapping you can choose a different name (my-new-name.wordpress.com) and either update the domain mapping or transfer it to the new blog, if you have trouble with the changing the staff can help you.

    I will flag this for staff attention.

  3. Hi again, thanks for the quick response!

    Right now, my new blog is named http://allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com/

    Am trying to figure out how to make it allegrasleep.com. I bought the mapping, thought that would solve the problem... but it hasn't (yet).

  4. I updated the DNS nameservers on godaddy to-

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

  5. You might need help from the staff to transfer the domain mapping, take a look at

    Dashboard >> Store >> My Upgrades and see if the old domain mapping shows up there - if so transfer it to your new blog. You should be able to use the time left on the old domain mapping.

    If you are having trouble, I flagged this earlier for the staff to help

  6. Thanks again for your help.

    I guess the issue now is.. that wordpress made me this-
    allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com (which is my new existing blog), but I need to somehow delete that and just use http://www.allegrasleep.com, or have it so when people type my domain URL into a browser they are redirected to allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com.

    Right now when I type in my domain URL all I get is this-

    allegrasleep.wordpress.com is no longer available.

    The authors have deleted this site.

  7. Transferring the domain mapping for allegrasleep.com, to allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com will send the traffic there as you want

    The domain mapping for allegrasleep.com, is still set to allegrasleep.wordpress.com

    Please don't delete allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com -

  8. "Domain: allegrasleep.com

    The domain upgrade replaces your site's default address with a custom domain of your choice. Instead of https://allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com/, this upgrade makes your site available at http://allegrasleep.com/.

    You can manage your domain in Settings -> Domains. From there you can add more domains to your site, specify the primary domain to use, or edit your domains settings."

  9. How do I change the domain mapping for allegrasleep.com from allegrasleep.wordpress.com to allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com?

    I am not seeing any options to do that.

  10. Domain Helper shows the mapping is set correctly except for the Primary domain - see the link below to set the Primary.

    Also it can take up to 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet - changes usually start in a few hours,but you will probably be the last one to see the changes due to caching issues. You can try clearing your browser cache & forcing a page reload.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#setting-the-primary-domain

    Hold Your Horses!

    It can take as long as 72 hours for DNS changes to become widely available. If you're still not seeing your site loading at allegrasleep.com, please wait a few more hours, clear your browser cache, and try again.
    Nameservers Validated!

    Congratulations! The nameservers appear to be set up correctly for allegrasleep.com.

    More Information
    Oops, No Primary Site Set

    There is no primary domain set for allegrasleepdotcom.wordpress.com. This means that although allegrasleep.com will forward to the site, allegrasleep.com will appear in the browser address bar. To learn more about setting a primary domain, please see our documentation.

  11. I DID IT!!!!

    Thank you SO MUCH for your help!!

    :D

  12. I love it when a plan comes together :)

    You be welcome & glad I could help

  13. : )

  14. Well I can see I'm not needed here.

    Auxclass, outstanding help!

  15. Thanks for the attaboy

    It was touch and go for a while, and you can look at and do things I can't and if the OP had paid twice, you can make sure the refund happens, I can't. Good for the OP that I was around the computer for a while

    Maybe I should apply for a job with WordPress? I can spell 'Automattic" correctly without looking at the bottom of the page, and some of my fixes actually help people :)

    take care & have a nice week

    Once you work here, it actually goes the other way. I have to change "automattic" to "automatic" in every other situation now.

    take care & have a nice week

    You as well.

  17. "automattic"

    You forgot the capital "A" - best we not let Matt see that over-site :)

    thanks & take care
