This might sound ridiculous, but when I first started looking around at starting a blog with word press, I’m pretty sure I typed in the domain I wanted and it was available, but then somehow I logged out and then logged in and it was gone and no longer available. I just want to make sure that there’s no chance that I am in fact the person with said domain name but somehow made it unavailable to myself accidentally by already claiming it?? Like I said, sounds ridiculous but I’m not terribly tech savy and when I look in to who owns the domain I am interested in, it seems to have been registered on the same day that I started searching for it… I just want to make sure that there’s no chance of getting the original domain name I was hoping for. Thanks so much for your help!
The blog I need help with is everfurtherblog.wordpress.com.
What is the exact URL starting with http:// of the wordpress.COM hosted site you refer to please?
If you are refering to a custom domain rather than a .wordpress.com URL for a sub domain then what is it starting with http:// please?
