Connecting Namecheap domain to Netlify project

Hello Netlify Team!

I am trying connect my Namecheap domain (donkswap.com) to Netlify [https://donkswap.netlify.app].

When I tried to configure the custom domain with Netlify, I received the following error:

donkswap.com is already registered. If you registered this domain name through a different registrar, select Add domain to begin delegating it to Netlify.

When I clicked ‘Add Domain’ I received the following error:

Another site is already using this domain

Domains must be unique across Netlify. Currently another site is using this domain. If you don’t know which site, please contact support for guidance.

I connected with Namecheap support and they told me the following:

namecheap chat

Please advise as to what the next steps will be to set up my domain.

Thank you!

hi there, are you trying to use netlify DNS?

I bet we have some guides that might apply to your use case:

I am using a Namecheap DNS.

Should I verify the domain with a txt record?

Hi @JimmyStax90,

The custom domain has been removed from the site and you should be able to add it to your website now.
