    Hello guys,

    as many other, I have the problem that I deleted my site because I wanted to switch to another hoster. Now the site is blocked. Can you please restore my site, so I can start the transfer correct?

    Hi there,

    Cancelled domains are not released immediately, and it can take anything from a few days to over a year before a cancelled domain becomes available again, if at all. You should never cancel a domain that you still want to use, as there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to use it again somewhere else in future. Only cancel a domain if you’re completely sure you no longer want it at all.

    In this case your domain will be released by early next week at which point you can register it somewhere else instead.

    I can also still restore your domain, but as you’ve already been refunded we’ll need you to pay for the domain’s registration again. Also note that it’s not possible to transfer a new domain for 60 days after registration. You’ll be able to point the domain to another provider, but it will need to remain registered with us until this period passes.

    Let me know how you would like to proceed.

    Hi Kokkieh,

    Thank you very much for your detailed answer. That is exactly what I needed to know. In case that my domain will be available next week, I don’t need to re-register it with wordpress but will instead register it with my new hoster.

    Thank you very much. You’ve been a great help.

    Thanks for confirming.

    Based on the registration date, your domain should be released by the weekend. There’s always a small chance someone else registers it once it’s released, but for a new domain that’s very unlikely. I would recommend you just check daily if it’s available again so you can get it as soon as it’s released.

    Hi, I’m in a similar situation. I’m a newbie to blogging and accidentally deleted my awgelife.wordpress.com site

    Any chance I can get this renewed?

    Recycling a .wordpress.com URL is possible only if 2 or more years have expired after deletion and only in some cases. Sites already deleted by their authors two or more years ago may become available again, if they present no username or other technical conflicts. From the relevant support doc at http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/
