    hi,
    i’d like to know if wordpress automatically deletes blogs after a period of time without traffic. is it possible not to write anything for, lets say, a year, and still have the blog up and going when i come back?

    thanks!

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

    No, god today alone we got someone who wanted to use the domain name of a blog that’s been registered, but completely empty, since 2006.

    It seems wordpress won’t delete the empty domain even long years ago. am I right?

    You’re right. Too much potential for drama. If you want a particular domain and the blogger has posted contact info, you can ask them if they want to give it up. Otherwise it just sits there.

    Just in case you two don’t know this, if you register another .wordpress.com blog and purchase a domain mapping upgrade what the underlying .wordpress.com subdomain URL is does not matter at all. See here for registering such a “placeholder” blog.
