Cancel Domain

If you notify us within two days of purchase you may cancel a domain name purchased through WordPress.com and receive a full refund. After cancellation, there is no guarantee that the domain will become available to register somewhere else and you may not be able to get it back.

To cancel a domain you registered with WordPress.com, please log into your account, go to My Upgrades click on the Settings button (with the cog icon) for the upgrade you wish to cancel, and click on Cancel. If it’s more than 2 days past the purchase date, you will not receive a refund, but the domain can still be canceled by contacting support.

Important note: The cancellation link sent to the email address on the account is only valid for 24 hours. If you click through and see an error, please contact us.
