    Hi guys, I wanted to use a particular wordpress name for a blog and I find it is not available, however when I checked the blog it was setup on June 8th 2008 and hasn’t anything entered in the blog – just the regular Hello World opening page.
    Is this something that is done as a standard (in the way that domain names are bought up), or is there anyway for me to get access to this particular name for my blog…am currently blogging but not under the name I would like.

    The blog I need help with is



    We don’t reuse or reassign blog names on

    If you like, you can attempt to contact the owner of that blog and ask them if they would like to transfer it to you. You can do this by either leaving them a message using a contact form (if it exists), or leaving a comment on an existing page or post requesting they contact you.

    If you are able to reach the blog owner and they are willing to transfer the blog to you, here are the instructions they can use to do that:

    If they do not respond or refuse the transfer, you will need to select a different name for your blog.

    Keep in mind we also offer an upgrade for custom domain names and you can use any blog URL underneath a custom domain. That way, your visitors won’t see the underlying URL.

    You can see more details about how domain mapping works:
