"custom_domain is owned by another account" error when adding a custom domain

Trying to add domain: sciencekat.com
This domain was previously added to another netlify account, but we’ve deleted it from that account.

The site we’re trying to add this domain to is: sciencekat

Hey there, @and-mel :wave:

Welcome to the Netlify Forums! Glad you found us :slight_smile:

We can definitely look into this for you. Can you please verify domain ownership and let us know by responding here when that’s done. If the verification is successful we can remove the domain from the other account so you can use it on yours.

The domain has been verified.

Hey there, @and-mel :wave:

This has been done! You should be free to use the domain now.

It works. Thank you so much @hillary!
