  • Hi Ahmed,

    yes you can if the deleted site hasn't crossed 93 days. Usually deleted sites are still in the Admin Center for 93 days. check the below article to get the deleted sites. If in case you removed it from there as well then there is no way of getting that site unless you have any 3rd party tool which backed up your sites.

    Default Url for Deleted Site from Admin Center:

    If you deleted the site then the site will be in Admin Center > Deleted Sites if you want to delete from there as well then try running the below commands:

    Connect-SPOService -Url
    Remove-SPODeletedSite -Identity

    And also you have to remove Group Email Address if you want to use the same group as well. Go to Office 365 Admin Portal and go to Groups then delete the group you want too from there as well but it will take 24 hours to take place. After 24 hours then you can create with same url and same group name.

    Thanks & Regards,
