    I am trying to purchase the domain vegantraveljapan.com but it says ‘domain is taken’. When I tried googling it, I get redirected to a suspicious website: https://crowdgrocery.com/

    The website seems to be created with WordPress. Is there a way to use this domain that is obviously not taken?

    You can register a domain without using it as such. In this case, the domain owner has decided to redirect it to a website (certainly his own). This is a hosting setting and has nothing to do with WordPress.

    The fact is: the domain is taken. If you want to use it yourself, you would have to contact the website owner and ask about the conditions under which you could take it over. Or you could choose a different domain.
