Possible to rename blog domain to an inactive site that belongs to some1 else?

  1. as some inactive blogs have been, well, inactive for a few years, will this inactive site be deleted?
    and will another person be able to take the domain of that inactive site?

    thanks in advance! :)

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

  2. The short answer is no - and deleted names are never recycled so if the other person deleted the site you still could not get it - you only chance is to leave a comment to the effect that you would like the name on the site if there is a comment field somewhere and hope they read their comments.

    Your other option is to register a regular .COM etc name and map it to an site here - about $ 17-- a year if I remember correctly

    or find a name that is close to what you want - maybe off by one letter of add a letter

  3. thanks for the enlightenment :)

  4. You be welcome
