Retrieving Live domain name after reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently had to do a complete reinstall of home server to a new machine.  When I try to rgeister my previous domain name I get a message that it is not available, but I cant find any way to reclaim it.  The only only option the windows live domain website gives me is to cancel it.  if I do that can I immediatley retrieve it?

  • This is something, what we cannot solve on the forums then. Maybe the support for the Live Domain Services can do.

  • If you use the same Live ID as your previous server, you should be able to retrieve the vanity URL.

  • Thanks for the reply but there's the rub.  either I can't remember what Live ID I used or the Live ID I used when I registered the domain name expired due to lack of use.  so I can't retrieve and can't cancel it to get it back.
