    I'm trying to register a new Instagram account for my new website/project. When I got to the link: instragram.com/thenameiwant I can see the URL does not exist. Therefore, it should be available.

    When I try to register a new account with the username I want, it shows as being already taken. But it's not.

    When I try to sign in with the username I want, it shows this error:
    Any ideas what is going on?

    This could be because the account with that username was previously disabled/banned. This won't allow you to create an account with that username.

    This is funny, haha.

    When I try to create a new account with random username, at first it shows that everything is OK (username available, password OK etc.), but when I click on Sign Up button it shows an error that something went wrong creating my account.

    When I click again on the same Sign Up button, it shows an error that the username is taken, haha.

    I have dinamic IP. I have created only 4 or 5 IG accounts from this computer. 2 of these accounts were used with AddMeFast, the other two were brand accounts for my websites/businesses. I have never used any bots like MassPlanner.

    What's the problem with these motherfuckers!? Why they don't let me create an account for my business?

    That's the reason.
    Reset your IP and try it with something like MultiLoginApp again.

    I myself could never create more than one Instagram Account per IP and "PC".

    I have dynamic IP.
    The accounts used for AddMeFast were created last year. Since the last account creation date, my IP was automaticaly changed 15+ times.

    Yes that is okay, but Instagram is also recognizing your Browser and PC!
    A lot of people are also complaining about not being able to create accounts on desktop anymore.

    I think my whole IP range is blacklisted. I also tried to create an account via BlueStacks, but no luck - the same error. Next time I will try to create a new account from different computer and IP range.
