"Awaiting External DNS" after remove wrongly added A records

  • We need to know your netlify site name. quizzical-raman-636587.netlify.app

    • custom domain: saga.so
    • error message: Awaiting External DNS

The better the post - the faster the answer.

Unfortunately I added two new A records with values: and
When I realise my mistake (around an hour) I immediately remove those A records.

Short after that saga.so stoped working, and in Domain management → Production domains
→ saga.so shows “Awaiting External DNS”

I didn’t change name servers. They still are dns1.p04.nsone.netdns4.p04.nsone.net

Is this error (Awaiting External DNS) makes sense in this case?
Any idea how long will take to get saga.so back online?

Thanks for the support.
