    Hi frithjoferpelding,

    When you say you want to keep the domain, but want to cancel it, I’m not clear on what you’re wanting to do. If you want to use the domain to point to a new hosting provider, you can do that for most hosts by logging into your Domain Administration area and updating the nameservers:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/change-name-servers/

    Also, the domain registration and other upgrades are associated with a different WordPress.com account. You will need to be logged in under that account to modify the domain records. Furthermore, in order for us to change any of the upgrades on this account, including canceling the domain or domain mapping, we will need to receive a request from the account that owns the upgrades.

    Hi tmfepictures,

    If we cancel your domain registration, it can take up to several weeks for our domain registrar to release the domain, and we can’t guarantee that your domain will be available to you again once canceled.

    If you want to keep using your domain but you don’t want to use WordPress.com anymore, you don’t have to cancel it. Instead, you can move the domain to another site, using the Domain Administration tool under Store > Domains, at the bottom of the page.

    For more information on using the domain elsewhere, please see:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/

    If you still wish to cancel it completely, please reply back to confirm.

    The domain tmfepictures.com, is your photo business – you cancel the registration you are gone off the internet for many weeks and your clients will not be able to find you and when they go to your web site that does not exist and get an error message they will think you have went out of business and if they have gave you money as a deposit will start looking for a lawyer to get their money back or get their pictures – the others will just find another photographer

    Either way you loose

    Take the advice of @jackiedana above and don’t cancel it – either move the registration to another Registrar or point the name servers to you new host – you will be back in the forum with a trashed site and possibly someone holding tmfepictures.com hostage and pointing to another photo or porn site

    Yes happens all the time

    @jackiedana – you be welcome – I have just seen too many people show up in the forum after it was too late to fix the gone domain name – did not want the OP to loose the domain name
