Reserved blog name

  1. Does anyone know how I can find out more about a reserved blog domain name?

    I'm trying to register a name that I'm pretty sure won't be used by anyone else but it's coming up as 'reserved' - is there anyway to contact WordPress to ask if they can release it?

    Thanks!

  3. When a username account is created the blog with the matching name is reserved. It's only possible to get a reserved .wordpress.com blog if you have the registered the matching WordPress.com username.

    You can either register a blog with a name that's close to the ones you want or you can purchase your own domain via a domain mapping upgrade.

    When mapping a domain to a free hosted WordPress.com blog there must be an underlying .wordpress.com blog URL to map from. But it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com blog URL is at all. No matter which URL is clicked the vistor will be seamlessly directed the domain URL and locate the content.
