Name exists but blog is deleted

  1. Hi,

    I want to create a blog, but when I fill in the name it says 'Blog already exists.' But when I enter the blogname.wordpress.com it says 'The authors have deleted this site.'

    So how come I still can not use that name?

  2. There is no recycling of deleted blog URLs.

    However, 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.

  3. Can't I regain access to the deleted URL I referred to? Since it was my own domain..
