Netlify and namecheap dns

i was playing around with the dns records on namecheap while trying to get google console working and I deleted a few of the existing record (a major mistake on my part). THe DNS stopped working so I decided to redo everything. set up the domains again both on name cheap and netlofy

I deleted the domain identify and set up everything again. but it doesn’t work. works but typing in doesn’t work I think because it isn’t redirecting or something.

this is what I see in my domain page on netlify

please help :sob:

Hi @rudrprasad,

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Netlify’s Support Forums!

Looks like the name servers haven’t propagated yet:

dig NS +trace | tail -n 6
;; Received 736 bytes from in 61 ms		1800	IN	NS		1800	IN	NS
;; Received 99 bytes from 2610:a1:1024::200#53( in 115 ms

I’m seeing the name servers instead of the Netlify name servers mentioned here:

If you have the Netlify name servers configured at your registrar, as mentioned in this guide, it could take up to 48 hours for propagation.

You can configure your domain for Netlify name servers by following this Support Guide:

hello sir

thank you for reaching out to me.

will there be any way to know if there are any errors in the setting up of the DNS. the thing is this is my first client as a web developer and I don’t want things to go south.

I’ve set up the DNS from netlify and also set it on namecheap using the custom DNS option.

Hi, @rudrprasad. You have an inactive DNS zone here:

You must delete it and use these instructions instead:

Alternatively, you can activate the inactive DNS zone. Now, the external DNS instructions are simpler and less error prone so I do recommend that workflow above if you are having issues getting DNS configured.

That said, if you want to activate the DNS zone, there is a support guide (with both solutions) here:

If there are questions about either solution, please let us know.
