domain name taken but not being used

    Has anyone dealt with a situation where a domain name they really want is taken, but the user isn’t using their site at all? In my case, the user hasn’t filled anything out except for the title, so it’s a complete shell of a domain name. There’s no contact information for them either.

    This may sound silly but i just LOVE this particular domain name and it kills me to not able to use it when someone else isn’t actively using it :P Just thought I’d throw this out there on the off chance that someone has any suggestions. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is reelreviews.home.blog.

    I’m sorry, blog addresses cannot be recycled or taken from the site owner without their permission. They would need to transfer the blog to you. Please see https://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ as well for more information.

    Hi there,

    Try contacting the current owner of the address by leaving a comment there. If you’re lucky they have email notifications for new comments active and might transfer the domain to you. Worst that can happen is that they say no or ignore it :)
