Conflicting ownership with other existing zones

I’m trying to add the domain name codehorror dot com. When I try it says:

name is already taken, codehorror.com is conflicting the ownership with other existing zones

I own this domain and would like to host it on Netlify. Any ideas how to add the domain?

Hi, @JRTwo. We have a support guide about this exact issue here:

​Please let us know if there are questions after reading that or if the verified-for-netlify DNS record has been created.


Hi Luke, I’ve done that. The domain now contains the txt record with it’s value set to this post.

Hi, @JRTwo. I’ve removed the DNS zone configured on the other team. You should be able to add the custom domain to your site or create a DNS zone for it now.

If there are other questions or concerns, please let us know.
