Is there a way for unused blogs to be erased to let the domain become available?

  1. I really want to use the domain vantagepoints or vantagepoint however both are taken but the sites that have those domains have not been used in 6 and 7 years. Also, each page was never posted on and only have the first post that is automated by wordpress. I was wondering if there is anything that could be done about this. I am starting a travel blog and so far that is the only title I can think of and it would mean the world to me if I could use either of those domains.

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

    WordPress.com does not erase blogs that are not used, and deleted blog URLs are not recycled.

    Your best course of action would be to leave a comment on the site you wish to have, or if there is a contact form on the site use it to try and contact the owner to see if they would be willing to transfer it over to you. DO NOT LET THEM DELETE IT. A deleted blog address is gone forever. Have them transfer it to you as outlined in this support page.

  3. Thanks so much! If not I will have to use tumblr because that is where the url is available

    Sorry, but unless you could come up with a variation on it that wasn't taken here, and you feel you need that URL, then that might be your only choice. Both vantagepoint.com and vantagepoints.com are taken, so that isn't really an option either.
