Duda site traffic via Netlify Domain

Hi guys, I currently have my domain registered with Netlify.

When I try to connect my Duda site (similar to wix) I’m getting an error that the domain is already taken.

I’ve updated the DNS settings and whatsmydns is showing the correct settings but I’m getting a privacy error.

Do I need to move my domain away from Netlify or is there a way to get this to propagate correctly.


Hi @frankinstyyn

This is what I see

If you are using Netlify DNS, you are required to host your primary site on Netlify. If you are hosting your primary site elsewhere, you will need to move your DNS elsewhere too.

Hey @coelmay,

Thanks for coming back.

To confirm I understand you correctly.

In order for me to use another website builder (wix, squarespace etc) I need to move my domain to goDaddy, 123reg or similar?

Thanks again

If you are using your primary domain (ie. frankinstyyn.co.uk) yes.

This is outlined under section 3 of the Self-Serve Subscription Agreement.

Netlify Managed DNS or Netlify functions are strictly for use with sites deployed to Netlify.

@coelmay - okay, that’s great. Thank you for your help :+1:t3:
