Additional Info

Deleted Blog Names/URLs

A WordPress.com blog owner can choose, at any time, to permanently delete his/her blog. There are any number of reasons someone may want to do this, and we certainly respect their wishes and decisions.

Blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over a blog name that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner. Please do not submit support requests asking us to do this.

Reserved Blog Names/URLs

When a WordPress.com user signs up for an account we reserve the URL of their username. So if they signed up for the username of exampleuser we would reserve exampleuser.wordpress.com for them. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to unreserve it and you will need to choose a different name.

Domain Names

Your WordPress.com site URL’s can be edited later, while the domain you have purchased is not.
