    I really just want to delete my site aglutenfreepicture.com, I am not using it and do not want to pay the yearly fee, please help. I am moving abroad and would like this sorted ASAP if anyone can help. I have looked under transferring it but how is this possible if you have no one to take the name?

    The blog I need help with is aglutenfreepicture.com.

    If you would like to delete your WordPress.com site, there are options and instructions for doing so here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    Please bear in mind that once deleted, that site’s WordPress.com URL will become permanently unavailable for future use. If you feel that you might need that URL again in the future, you might want to choose one of the other options listed on the the page linked above.

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

    I paid for a domain and therefore it will not allow me to delete it this way. It says within 48 hours of purchase you can cancel the upgrade but if it has been longer to contact support. It has been longer therefore I need some help.

    I can absolutely help you with that.

    Just to clarify, if you want to cancel your domain aglutenfreepicture.com it can take up to several weeks for our domain registrar to release the domain, and it may not choose to do so. We can’t guarantee that your domain will ever be available to you again once canceled. If you have any intention of using aglutenfreepicture.com again in the future, I suggest that you do not choose to cancel.

    Please confirm that you understand and want to cancel your domain. Once you have done so, I will cancel it and remove the upgrade from your account.

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

    Yes I would like to cancel my domain. If it can take weeks, will I receive an email when it has been completed? Thanks for your help.

    The cancellation on our end will be fairly instant.

    What takes weeks will be the possibility of that domain being released into the pool of available domains to be registered. And there is a very strong chance that it will not be released at all (because a domain squatter or investor will have purchased it).

    If you have any intention of using aglutenfreepicture.com again, you should instead change nameservers to point to your new webhost or transfer registration of that domain to another registrar.
