freeing up inactive username and inactive subdomain

    How can I change my username to williamalba? It appears that username is already in use, but the individual with that username appears to be inactive on WordPress. (It’s even possible that, many years ago, *I* signed up for the username williamalba but remained inactive.)

    More to the point, I would like to create the blog, and link the domain (which I already own) to that blog. But is not available, presumably because that username already exists.

    If the username williamalba and the URL are both inactive, is able to release them? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is



    If you’re going to use a custom domain, you don’t need the similar underlying domain. Just use any old domain, like and the domain mapping upgrade.



    Sounds good — thanks for the advice.
