Domain claimed but enable to release

I tried to setup my domain ( but I realized I did it the wrong way as I did not want Netlify to do my DNS. I deleted the domain under my users “domains” and wanted to add it as a custom domain for my instance ( Yet even after deleting it under my users domains sections shows up as “Another site is already using this domain” when adding it as a custom domain. Seems like deleting the domain for my user does not release it.

Hi, @mvellinga. I believe we found the root cause of this and resolved it.

Would you please try adding that domain to the new site now?

Hi @luke. I can indeed confirm I can now add the domain. Thanks for the quick response and the solution to my problem!
