Release a Domain

Hi all!  I was forwarding my domain to my WordPress site, but decided to consolidate it all under WordPress.  I deleted my domain from GoDaddy a few days ago but when I go to buy it on WordPress it still says the domain is taken.  Any suggestions on how I can get my domain back on the market?  Thanks!

Re: Release a Domain

There's about a month and a half hold before the registry makes the domain available again, and there is a chance you wouldn't get it back that way.

 

What you would want to do is transfer the domain instead of canceling.  Check if you can manually recover the domain in your account, or contact support to help.
