Delete NETLIFY type DNS records

Hello Luke,

Can you delete my dns record for misiki.in and www.misiki.in


hi there, have you tried to delete these records yourself? if you have tried and receive an error, what does it say?

It says, system generated record can not be deleted

HI, @itswadesh. We have more information about the NETLIFY and NETLIFYv6 type DNS records here:

Please read that support guide above for an in-depth explanation of how these records behave with our service. The three key points there are summarized as:

  • These records are locked by default and can be unlocked by our support team.
  • These records only connect domain names to IP addresses.
  • These records do not control which site the domain name is linked to (if any).

I’ve unlocked the existing records for this custom domain now. If there are other questions or concerns, please let us know.

Hi, @luke!
Is there a way to undo deleting NETLIFY type records?

Hi, @react.radicalized. There is no “undo”.

However, these records are automatically created when a custom domain is added to a site. The workaround is to delete the custom domains from the site settings (under Site Name > Settings > Domain management > Custom domains) and then add them back again.

Adding the domains back again will automatically create the missing NETLIFY records again. If that doesn’t work or if there are other questions, please let us know.
