en WordPress.com Forums › Support Changing the name of the blog address Author Posts October 1, 2013 at 10:55 pm #1464239 lisawallis1Member I want to change my blog address. The one I want is available yet wordpress keeps saying it isn’t because I created the blog address I wanted, then deleted it, so I could change the current one. The blog I need help with is goodmummabadmumma.wordpress.com.

You can’t recover a deleted blog URL. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/ Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made. http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ Author Posts The topic ‘Changing the name of the blog address’ is closed to new replies.
