New blog with old URL

  1. Hi.

    I want to create a new blog.

    Unfortunately, I can't register the name/URL that I want; even though it says that the blog with this name/URL is no longer available. The old author of this site has deleted it but then why can't I register the site? What can I do?

    Can you help me, please? :(

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Hey there,
    For security reasons, it is against policy for WordPress to reinstate deleted URLs.

    Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over the address of a blog that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner. Please do not submit support requests asking us to do this.

    An option is to choose another domain with a similar address.

    Kind regards

  3. Oh, I honestly had no clue!!!
    Sorry, I'm very new to this WordPress universe :)

    Anyway, thanks so much for your help and fast reply, mindelson. Now I'll just try to find a new domain that I like.

    Very best wishes!

  4. It's okay, no need to apologize. We're all in this together!

    Happy WordPressing! :)
