Author Posts February 21, 2012 at 12:45 pm #829245 arnussMember 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.

February 21, 2012 at 1:35 pm #829327 raincoasterMember 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.

See here for registering such a “placeholder” blog. See here for purchasing a domain name and a domain mapping upgrade.
