Domain is not functioning (more details)

  1. I've had time to mess with this and here is where I am at:

    1. I have a blog, I purchased a domain name through WordPress,, a couple of years ago. That expired on September 18, 2012. I have since renewed and it says it will stop functioning on September 18, 2013, yet still also says it expired and I need to contact support to pay the renewal fee.

    2. points to a blank template, though it is a hosted blog. When I go to check DNS settings, the only domain that shows up in the Automattic Control Panel is the new domain I bought last night, So even if I knew how to make those kind of changes (I don't), I can't.

    My goal is either to restore the url and the original blog, or have those that type in be redirected to I created as a place to transfer the xml file from in case this can't be resolved. But since I paid for the renewal for and paid for the full bundle for, I'd appreciate a WordPress tech support person to email and fix this, as at this point it doesn't look like it's a problem solvable on my end, nor am I website builder with the skills to fix this.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Listen, I don't want to be here. Since wordpress doesn't provide direct contact info for technical support, even in an email, I am forced to be here. And regardless, I don't want to be told how to fix this. I want this fixed since I am paying for it. It's not personal, I just don't want to talk to a volunteer. Can you help me figure out why is showing that WILD WEST DOMAINS is the registrar and that the name server is showing up as NS1.7CLOUDCOMPUTING.COM? This is a screw-up and I'm afraid they are the only ones that can help.

  3. You didn't attempt to renew until November 4, almost 2 months after the expiration date in September. As such, you only renewed the domain mapping, not the domain registration.

    I have refunded that charge.

    As for, the domain now appears to have been purchased by someone else since its expiration in September, so I have removed the listing from your account.
