Want username of deleted account

  1. Hi there.
    I am trying to get a particular name for my blog, but it says it's taken. But when I browse there, it says the blog has been deleted.

    Can I get the name?
    :)
    Angel...

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

  2. Nope. WordPress policy is to never recycle usernames or blog names. Once they're deleted, they're gone forever.

  3. Please read the relevant support doc here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ However, if you purchase your own domain name via a domain mapping upgrade then it won't matter what the underlying .wordpress.com sub-domin URL is.

  4. Thanks guys! Much appreciated. Especially the links, timethief. :)

  5. You're welcome and best wishes. :)
