    I was trying to change my blog address but it said that the site was reserved. What does this mean?

    The blog I need help with is thetalkingturtlex.wordpress.com.

    Hi there,

    When someone registers a username, the blog address that matches the username gets reserved for that person. So, only the person with the matching username will be able to use that particular address. There is no way to use an address that has been reserved for someone else.

    How long a name is reserved for someone after he deleted the site?

    Sites reserved for a username are never released for anyone else to use. Only the owner of the username can register them.

    Deleted sites that don’t match a username on WordPress.com could be released after a few years, but there are different factors that determine this:
