What does it mean when a WordPress URL returns that is not yet activated?

  1. I create a new blog called, but it says that site already exists. When the URL is typed into a browser, it returns " has not been activated yet". Does this mean that this URL has been previously owned or deleted? In which case, I would need to contact the owner to ask for permission to use the URL, but the owner or status of the URL is both unclear.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. That means that the user dearblog exists, but hasn't created the blog that is reserved for them.

  3. @RC - could it also mean that there is an activation email lost somewhere - if the blog was just reserved for an account name should it not say "reserved" and not a message to contact support if you can't activate it?

  4. Ah, that's possible.
