Azure AD initial domain name takeover

Hello,

Is there a way to take over initial domain name that already taken by others?

I am trying to create new directory from free account and planning to upgrade subscription later on. However my preferred initial domain name already taken and I am not able to choose it for now.

I understand that it will only create default *.onmicrosoft.com but i prefer to use owned/existing domain name from here on.

or perhaps, is there any way to contact owner / global admin of existing domain?

Thank you

@Prayoga, You would not be able to find the owner information of the existing tenant as per the privacy policy. Please open a support case for this purpose and the support team may reach out to the owner of the tenant on your behalf. But it would completely be the owner's choice whether he/she would want to leave that domain name.

@amanpreetsingh-msft -- Off topic question: Are you adding the "Please accept as answer..." line manually in every post or is there any way to set up this as signature?
