HELP! Delete or Deactivate Blog URL ??

  • Author

    I began creating a blog using WordPress but once I got started I decided to purchase a Domain & WebHosting through GoDaddy stilling using WordPress – using the same blog name.

    So now the blog that I want to use is through GoDaddy but the URL address has WordPress at the end. If I take out the WordPress at the end it brings up the one I started originally w/ WordPress.

    Is there any way that I can change, deactivate, or delete the original blog without risking the new blog that I’ve been working on?

    Thanks in advance


    The blog I need help with is



    …don’t delete anything until you’ve communicated with someone who knows what they’re doing. Hopefully a moderator or staff member will be by soon.



    Did you map to your WordPress.COM blog okcmomof3/wordpress then change to Godaddy?

    If so it can take 24 to 72 hours for the changes to migrate to the far corners of the internet. Just leave a Post at the top of your WordPress.COM blog that says “We have moved to ……. then have a link to your new site” also turn off search engines so they won’t crawl your original WordPress.COM site.

    Then blog a lot at the new site and the old site will go away in the search engines.
