Or is the total wordpress-blog deleted then when I want to have a new name? Blog url: http://steinicketraining.wordpress.com/ August 22, 2011 at 4:24 pm #687045 vanillaloungeMember If you mean the name before wordpress.com (such as ‘steinicketraining’ in your case), it’s always possible to rename that, at any time: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/ Should you have registered a custom domain name and mapped it to your blog, the procedure is a little different, in that you’d have to cancel the first domain name a register/map a second one. In both cases there are no changes to your blog self, all content stays. August 22, 2011 at 7:38 pm #687087 steinickeMember Thanks a lot, that help’s.
