Domain name not removed

I’ve tried pointing my netlify site to a domain name registered elsewhere. But because I want someone else to completely manage the site, I removed the site from my netlify account site. This new person has all the code for the website on his github repo and deployed it to netlify but can’t point it to the same domain name I had earlier removed. He keeps getting error that the domain name is already taken by someone else.

Hi, @ibikstee. Our support team can assist with this. What is the domain name you are trying to add to the new account/site?

You can post that information publicly or you can private message (PM) that to one of our support staff. I’ve confirmed that PMs are enabled for your community login. Please keep in mind that only one person can see the PM and this will likely mean a slower reply than posting the information publicly. Please feel free to reply to however you prefer though.
