The URL of my new site is rishikweb.wordpress.com However, now I want to rename my new site (rishikweb.wordpress.com) to kavikondala.wordpress.com When I try to do this, it says that that name is already taken, even though I deleted my old site. How can I fix this? The blog I need help with is rishikweb.wordpress.com.

Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and the only exceptions are made are for URLs that were deleted 2 or more years ago. http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ Author Posts The topic ‘Website Renaming’ is closed to new replies.
