Additional Info

Deleted Site Names/URLs

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

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

Reserved Site Names/URLs

When a 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 for them. There is nothing we can do to unreserve it and you will need to choose a different name.

Domain Names

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