NETLIFY record restore

Hi. I accidentally removed one of my NETLIFY records everybodyfights.com which was pointing to ebfworkouts.netlify.app Is it possible to restore it?
And also if it possible to change domain from ebfworkouts.netlify.app to another Netlify domain?

Easiest thing to do would be to remove all NETLIFY records for that site and re-add it.

And also if it possible to change domain from ebfworkouts.netlify.app to another Netlify domain?

It doesn’t matter what .netlify.app site is shown as associated to a custom domain on the DNS pane. What matters is what site the custom domain is actually linked to. The more you know :mage:!

Thanks for the prompt reply! How can I figure out what site the custom domain is actually linked to?

In your list of sites, the site name will be the custom domain :slight_smile:

I mean my www.everybodyfights.com NETLIFY record points to ebfworkouts.netlify.app I want to change it to point to everybodyfights.netlify.app So, after changes Ill have www.everybodyfights.com NETLIFY everybodyfights.netlify.app record. Is it possible?
Appreciate your support!

It doesn’t matter what .netlify.app site is shown as associated to a custom domain on the DNS pane. What matters is what site the custom domain is actually linked to.

The DNS record could have www.everybodyfights.com pointing to made-up-test-domain.netlify.app and it’d still work, so long as the domain was added to the Custom Domain on the site you actually want it on. :slight_smile:

So, if my Site Setting --> Site Name is everybodyfights then my www.everybodyfights.com is pointed to everybodyfights.netlify.app? IF I want to change it then i should change my Site Name?

I think you’re overthinking it; all you need to do is llink www.everybodyfights.com to the site that you want it linked to.

It’s currently set up here: https://app.netlify.com/sites/everybodyfights/settings/domain#custom-domains

If you want it on https://app.netlify.com/sites/suspicious-knuth-e5b386/overview then you should remove it from its current site and add it here: https://app.netlify.com/sites/suspicious-knuth-e5b386/settings/domain/setup.

Your custom domain could be random-domain-name.com and your Netlify site name could be the-zoo-is-cool… and the DNS record for random-domain-name.com could point to my-bike-is-red.netlify.app. It doesn’t matter :slight_smile:.

Oh, so Im specifying external domain for internal website and not vice versa :smile: Thanks a lot
