'Reserved Blog'

  1. Hi there, I am trying to sign up an WP blog which is [email redacted] bit it always pops up as 'RESERVED BLOG'. I tried using the same URL, and it says ' doesn’t exist
    The address cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved! But you can sign up and choose another one'. I am really confuse and would WP help me to recover this blog, as I am in-charge for this year's event and it's blog. I don't quite know who created this blog, but are there any chances I can use that same address ( Thank you very much for all your effort.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. The blog I need help with is not the above stated. Thank you

  3. When we register a username account the matching blog is reserved for our future use. It cannot be obtained by anyone other than the person who has registered the matching username account.

    If you own the matching username account
    then you can log in as Admin under that account and register the blog. If you don't own that username account then you cannot register the reserved blog.

  4. That user name is about the same age as your account (1 week) if you created the account in confusion then try the recovery process

    Thanks but I'm on it.

  7. Hello everyone. I have tried the links you've all attached but mysteriously, I JUST COUDN'T SIGN IN THE ACCOUNT. I think this all happened when I messed around with the settings. It keeps on showing, 'this blog is reserved' which I totally don't understand. Well will this work if I delete the email account associated with the so it will reset the account? I really need this account to be done soon. I have the email account for this, and even the first time activation URL. But when I try 'forget password' there's no such account. I am very very confused. Thank you.

    I did create this account but inserted a wrong URL, so what I did was delete the '' and tried starting a new URL which is ''. I am totally confused. Thanks for your effort.

  9. is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.


    This URL is reserved doesn’t exist for the person with the matching username account and if you did not have the matching username account then you cannot register it.
    If you do have the matching username account then you log in under it and register the blog exactly as I stated above.

  10. Log out of ALL WordPress.COM accounts when you try the two recovery processes above. WordPress.COM remembers which account you are when you are logged in and I have seen that give problems with both recovery processes.

    I have tried registering the account as you said, but the same thing pops up, 'This site is reserved'. I don't understand that I have the matching E-mail ID yet I can't go register. And yes, I have deleted because the URL is wrong. So after I Deleted that URL, to change to www., I have been having this problem ever since. Do forgive if I still can't get what you say. I have tried the recovery page, but this pops up.

    Sorry but the website you gave does not exist on Is it a self-hosted website?

    Thank you very much.

  12. @auxclass
    Yes auxclass, I have logged out from ALL WORDPRESS.COM accounts and still have problems. Thank you very much.

  13. The blog has been created under your current account.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
