When I try to visit that domain it says “blog has been deleted by author.” Shouldn’t the domain name be available now?

It takes surpassing 3 warnings that blog deletion is irreversible and clicking a confirmation link in an email to delete a blog for good reason ie. deleted blog URLs are not recycled. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ Author Posts The topic ‘Deleted Blog’ is closed to new replies.
