I was not able to use a subdomain of my domain name on my other Netlify Account, why?

I created a new Netlify account and wanted to use a subdomain of my domain name, it says “example.com or one of its subdomains is already managed by Netlify DNS on another team.”

I already have my domain name active on one of my other Netlify account.

But, it’s is a subdomain name which is not already in use that I want to add which couldn’t. What’s the solution to this problem?

Hi there! As a security measure, you cannot by default share domains across accounts. What domain is this is reference to?

If the domain can not be used, can I use the subdomains if I don’t bring the apex domain to Netlify?

Will I be able to use subdomains on different accounts if no account has the apex domain configured but only a subdomain NS?
