Please i need help. I want to delete a custom domain and the option to perform that is not found anywhere.
I have deleted the netlify site name
Custom Domain is Emmriztech.com.ng
Error message: emmriztech.com.ng is already registered. If you registered this domain name through a different registrar, select Add domain to add it to your site. You can configure Netlify DNS for this domain later.
How can any one help me delete this off for me to start setting the domain up from scratch.
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Netlify Support Forums!
Are you still seeing the issue when attempting to add emmriztech.com.ng to your site? What site are you trying to add the domain onto? I’m not showing that the domain is currently on a site or DNS Zone so you should be able to add the custom domain to your site.
If you’re still seeing the issue, could you provide a screenshot of the error?
The domain was previously added to one site which I deleted it because I made modifications to it and then reuploaded it. To now add the domain became an issue. kindly see attached screenshot for the error.
Hi. What’s the result, if you click Add domain now?
It does not seem like an error, Netlify just tells you that this domain already exists.
I mean, I see this exact message literally every time I add a domain, bc in my case they are externally registered most of the time
Yes, the domain is registered externally, and as I mentioned before, it was added to a website I uploaded to my netlify account and it was working fine. Since there is no provision to edit the website live on the platform, I henced deleted the website, made the necessary corrections on the files locally, then tried to upload it back.
WHAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE
I want the newly uploaded website to take the name “emmriztech.com.ng”
If so, I believe it’s gonna connect to the new site automatically when you press “Add domain”. Again, that message is not an error.
If you don’t see the domain name on that tab, it just adds an extra step after clicking “Add domain”. It’s not super complicated, all you need to do is to login to your DNS provider (Godaddy etc.) and set name servers for your domain to Netlify’s (you’ll see them on the next screen after clicking “Add domain”)
