New Blog Name Taken

  1. I want to create a new WordPress blog using a certain name. When I went to use that name on the sign-up page, it said that it was taken. When I went to the site using the domain, it said that the authors had deleted the blog and it was no longer in use. Why can I not use that name now?

    It is very frustrating as I really want that name and no one is actually using it.


  2. Reclaim a blog

    You can’t – gone is gone forever and WordPress.COM does not recycle names, You need to choose a bit different name or buy a custom domain and map it.
