I am tryinf to create a new blog, but the URL that I have wanted is taken. However, the blog was already deleted.
I have read on WordPress that deleted blogs URLs become available only after 2 years, but is it possible to request for that URL? All the names I have thought of were reserved or taken by current blogs, so I just wish to know whether I can make a request. (:
You are correct that sites that have been deleted for more than two years would have the possibility for the URL to be reused. However you can only know if it is available for use when you try to select it as your URL.
If you are still seeing that it is taken, that means that means it is still not ready for reuse.
You can explore the recommendations given when you put in your desired URL, there maybe something that fits your needs available.
