"Authors have deleted site" I want it, not available

  1. I am looking for a specific wordpress domain, but it says taken when I type it in the "Blog Address" it says it is taken. So I go to the [blognameIwant] and it says "[blognameIwant] is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site." Can I contact WordPress and gain control of this domain? Is no one allowed to own it?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. That's not possible. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled

    However, you can register another blog with a similar name.

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying address is.

  3. Alright I figured that was the case. Luckily I have a perfectly suitable fallback that's not taken. Thanks!

  4. You're welcome and best wishes.
