“custom_domain is owned by another account” error message

Hello,

I am a very experienced Netlify user and I am a bit baffled by the error message I am receiving when trying to add a new site with custom domain.

I use Cloudflare as my DNS provider for the domain: https://fllr.art, as far as I know I never registered it in Netlify (I did check my former account and it was not registered there either).

I am already going to go ahead and verify ownership as described here: [Support Guide] Verifying domain ownership for Netlify custom domain

Thanks!

can you tell us the netlify site name please? Once we know that we can complete the verification.

The Netlify DNS name? Its https://fllr.netlify.app

Thank you for verifying!

There was an existing DNS zone for fllr.art under a cancelled Netlify account.

We’ve deleted that DNS zone so you should be able to use the domain on your account now!
