[resolved] [closed] Renewing your domain name (18 posts)

    I have been going in circles trying to renew my domain name. I've been told by blue host that it will expire shortly and was told to contact wild west domains. I've spoken with them several times and they say I have to do it through wordpress.org. I cannot find anywhere to contact someone or anyway to do this on wordpress.org. Can anyone advise me? Has this happened to anyone else?

    wordpress.org does not register or renew domain names. Perhaps you mean wordpress.com?

    No, it's not wordpress.com, it's the paid one. Wild west domain told me three times to go to wordpress.org.

    Yes, I saw that you said that but I can't get that through the heads of the people at Wild West Domains. It's been a frustrating day.

    I am very sorry but there is absolutely nothing we can do to help here. You need to talk to your domain name registrars.

    Thank you

  8. Your domain is registered at Wild Wild Domains. http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/mightyvegan.com

    BUT if I go there it says http://who.wildwestdomains.com/whois.aspx?domain=mightyvegan.com&prog_id=wildwestdomains

    Registered through: Automattic
    Domain Name: MIGHTYVEGAN.COM
    Created on: 23-Feb-11
    Expires on: 23-Feb-12
    Last Updated on: 01-Mar-11

    Go log in at wordpress.COM and see if it's listed on your dashboard there?

    I've already looked at my wordpress.COM site and it doesn't give me the option of renewing this particular site there. Does this mean Automattic may be who I should contact?

    Ugh, you have got to be kidding me! How can it be this difficult to renew a domain that I have registered with you guys! When I go to the link above it takes me to my wordpress.com sites NOT the one I need to renew. Can't you just tell me what to do?

    I also can't find anything on there that says domain administration once I log in and go to Store>domains so I'm at a complete loss.

  12. Mightyvegan? You didn't register with WordPress.ORG, you may have registered with WordPress.COM.

    As Ipstenu pointed out try visiting

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/

    and

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/

    There is no one here who can help you. You're in the wrong place.

  13. How can it be this difficult to renew a domain that I have registered with you guys!

    The problem is

    1) You don't know who you registered with (we think wordpress.com based on evidence)
    2) You may not be using the right wordpress.com ID to manage the domain

    Go here http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    For 'Please describe the problem you are having.' try this:

    I think I've registered a domain with you, and I can't access it. I posted on http://wordpress.org/support/topic/renewing-your-domain-name about this, and it looks like Automattic is the registrar for my domain, which I've been told means I should be able to manage it on my wordpress.com account. However, when I log in as <YOURID> I do not see anything under Stores > Domains. Can you please tell me what ID I registered the domain under so that I can log in and renew my domain? Thank you!

    For a subject I'd use "Cannot access my domain to renew"

    Jordi This is a hosting issue not a WordPress issue you need to speak to your hosting company & the company you registered your domain with.

    Ok, thanks!
    I knew that it were a wordpress problem domain renewed, not a hosting problem.
