I need my domain name back

    Hi, I purchased a plan & domain name with wordpress on 20.06.18 and cancelled it 12 hours later. IS there any way I can have the domain name released or purchase it again?

    I really need it and didn’t realise I would be able to use it after cancelling. I’m new to all this stuff.

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



    Hi there,

    Cancelled domains are not released immediately, and it can take anything from a few days to over a year before a cancelled domain becomes available again, if at all. You should never cancel a domain that you still want to use, as there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to use it again somewhere else in future. You should only cancel a domain if you’re completely sure you no longer want it at all.

    In this case, the domain mazadaar.co.uk will not be released until it expires and passes through the redemption process a year from now. We can still restore the domain to your account so you can keep on using it, but we cannot cause it to be released sooner, as we do not control that process.

    Please confirm whether you want us to restore that domain, and whether or not you’re planning to use it with a WordPress.com site or somewhere else.
