    Hi everyone, I would just like to ask a simple question as it is unclear to me what happens when your Domain name expires. Does this mean that if I do not renew, when it says that your …………..blog will be removed from your site, that all my posts will be gone too? Will I still have access to my blog, and is the removal of my Domain name only the name, and not the contend of my blog?
    Though I was reading the lengthy information on this subject I totally got lost, so would appreciate some clarification.
    Many thanks
    Agnes

    The blog I need help with is gaiainaction.blog.

    Hi Agnes,

    You will still have access to your site, and none of your content will be lost.

    But your site will no longer be accessible at gaiainaction.blog, and all links you’ve shared online using that domain will no longer work. Instead your site will go back to using the free WordPress.com address, gaiainaction.wordpress.com.

    The domain will go through a process of around 80 days before it’s deleted, at which point anyone will be able to buy it, so if someone else buys it at that point you won’t be able to use it again in future.
