Reserved domain?

  1. I wanted to register the mettaton.wordpress.com domain and when it came time to create a new WordPress account, I discovered/remembered that I had a WordPress account already when I tried using the same e-mail. I logged in and tried to register the domain again but the page tells me its been reserved? Is there any way to free up the domain again so I can take it, cos mettatonblog isn't the same...

  2. mettaton.wordpress.com was not taken by the person with the mettaton username; it wasn't listed as reserved before? I didn't complete registration when I tried taking it so I can't login to use the domain. Help would be appreciated.

  3. Hi there,

    If there's already a username mettaton, only that username can register mettaton.wordpress.com. It's highly unlikely that the domain would have shown as available for you, as that username has existed on our system for over a year, and the address would have been reserved for that username all this time.

    There is no way to register a domain that is reserved for an existing username.

  4. That's why I thought of it strange but when I went to that domain, the page asked me if I wanted to register the domain and took me through all the steps normally. Thanks anyways.

  5. It might have been showing you a custom domain like mettaton.com? Custom domains aren't reserved, so if you want to register that domain and it's showing as available you can.

  6. No, I remember very well that it was mettaton.wordpress.com, I know the mettaton.com domain isn't available.
