Switching domain to new Netflify site

Hi! I built a new website and wanted to swap it so that my DNS record points to it instead of another site that I’m currently hosting through Netlify. Even though I already deleted the DNS record through the Netlify dashboard, I’m getting an error message that I am already using my custom domain for a Netlify site. How long should I expect for a downtime for this switch?

Hi @larsz-o and welcome.

Have you removed the custom domain from the site it was on (Site settings > Domain management or https://app.netlify.com/sites/<site-name>/settings/domain) and from your domain settings (Domains or https://app.netlify.com/teams/<team-name>/dns)?

Didn’t check the domain settings - thank you! All set.
