i also purchased a custom theme that i now can’t use on my new wordpress blog.
thank you. :)
I’m sorry, deleted blogs can’t be restore. You can create a new blog at http://wordpress.com/signup . After you let us know your new blog address I can move the domain mapping and premium theme upgrade to that blog.
Note that the upgrades are registered under ‘joshualowemusic’, so make sure you’re logged in under that account.
Thanks. My new blog is joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com, can you move the domain mapping and premium theme upgrade to that blog? The theme is called Soundcheck.
When you move domain mapping, does that release the domain joshualowemusic.com that I own through FatCow?
joshualowemusic.com – has never been really trapped – your visitors have been sort of sent to a dead end
When the domain mapping is transferred to joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com AND you change the name servers at FatCow to point back to WordPress.COM – when people go to joshualowemusic.com they will be sent to the content you will put on joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com but they will see your custom domain name of joshualowemusic.com
Which means you will have a web site / blog back for joshualowemusic.com
thanks everyone. i’ll wait until the domain mapping and theme are moved over, then i’ll point joshualowemusic.com to wordpress.com.
one more question. will my blog be hosted by wordpress.com or fatcow? if I want to add content, music and video, can I do it through fatcow? FatCow is where I want to host my blog. Do I need to transfer the blog contents from WordPress to FatCow? I’m a bit confused about this. I know if I use simplescript on FatCow to connect to a wordpress blog, I can host the blog on FatCow. But if I already have a blog on WordPress .com, how do I have it hosted on Fatcow instead? ahhh!
With domain mapping joshualowemusic.com to your joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com and changing your name servers to WordPress.COM – you will be hosted on WordPress.COM with your domain name Registration at FatCow
You will add content to the dashboard at joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com but your visitors will see joshualowemusic.com when they visit.
You can move the content from WordPress.COM by exporting from here and importing to a WordPress.ORG install on FatCow – keep in mind that maintaining a WordPress.ORG install is more work
If you are new to all of this the easiest is to host here while you get used to a blog –
If you move to FatCow your custom theme will stay here – it will not transfer and you will need to find a new theme that you like –

Could you please reply back from the ‘joshualowemusic’ account? This way I can verify the ownership of your account and move the upgrade to your new blog.
after the upgrades are moved to the joshualowemusicsite account, can you delete this account?
The domain mapping upgrade has been moved to joshualowemusicsite.wordpress.com . The credits for your premium theme have been added to your account. Please use them to repurchase the Soundtrack theme: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/soundcheck/#switch
