Deleted custom domain name accidentally – can I get it back?

    I deleted my wordpress account this evening but also managed to delete my domain name and now it says it is unavailable! I was sent an email by a wordpress staff member who gave me one warning about deleting a domain name but thought it would just apply to wordpress and didn’t really understand that it would mean I wouldn’t be able to use it on any site! I realise I’m an idiot, and very new to this whole website game.

    Is there any way I can get this domain back? Its a custom domain name and I’ve seen other posts on these forums where its been possible to restore them. Help!

    Thanks so much.

    Hi there,

    I’ll be happy to contact the registrar to see if we can restore to your account, but I cannot guarantee that we will be able to get the domain back. If I am successful, I can send you a manual payment request form for you to repurchase the domain.

    I will let you know once I hear back from the registrar.

    Let me know if you have any questions.



    Good news! I have retrieved your domain back from our registry partner and was able to restore it under your account again. So, you should be all set!
    I have sent a manual payment for the fee and subscriptions. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
