    I wanted to renew our upgrade regarding the domain name but the problem is that the account the holds for renewal can’t be access anymore. Can we just delete that account so we could make the domain name available then have it registered again? I’m an admin of the blog.

    If you can’t renew something you probably don’t have enough access to delete anything – but if you delete the base blog the name and content are gone forever – you domain name expired about 15 days ago but it can take 60 days to revert to the wild and then there is no guarantee that you can get the same domain name – there is a whole industry that buys expired domain names and holds them for hostage – your best option is to not loose control of the name

    I will flag this for the staff to help you – they can explain all the options you have



    Thanks for getting in touch with us. Since time is of the essence, I was able to renew your domain for you. Even though it had expired, it was still in a grace period during which you can still renew it for the regular price.

    I am opening a support ticket for you so that we can communicate further regarding your payment for the renewal. Please watch for an email from WordPress Support shortly.
