Claim an un-used url.
I’ve read several articles related to this subject and, if I’ve understood them correctly, WordPress can allow users to claim url’s that are inactive.
I’ve tried to claim two similar url’s but variances were taken (but both have been inactive for several years). I commented on both and received no response.
Is this possible?
Ok cool. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
I’m sorry it wasn’t the answer you wanted to hear. Thank you for not shooting the messenger.
No worries. I’ll just keep digging for a good url.
Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
Thanks for the help. So I’d purchase a domain then ‘map’ it to a random WordPress url but the visible url will be the one I purchased? (Bit of a blog newb).
Yes. Your visitors will see only the domain URLs and not the underlying .wordpress.com URLs. If you like to you can read this for more complete infomation > Do I need a Domain?
You’re welcome. It’s my opinion that if you are committed to blogging over the long term purchasing your own domain nand establishing your brand is the way to go. If you do purchase a domain then know that if should you decide to hire a web host and set up a wordpress.org install one day then all you do is update the nameservers.
