When does a free domain name expire?

    I was hoping to start up my academic website on wordpress, and I would like the domain “bradjones.wordpress.com.” The website tells me that it has already been taken, but when I type in the url, it seems to have been abandoned. Is there any way to claim that website or contact the owner?

    Thanks –

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

    Never – no requirement to use a site to keep the name active

    Contact the person through the blog you want – WordPress.COM will not give out any contact details for privacy reasons

    you can register a custom domain name & map it to a blog here if you want
