Getting "Another site is already using this domain" for a domain I own

Hey folks,

I’m trying to set up the domain but it seems like the previous owner of the domain also used Netlify for their site.

I’ve read through some other topics around this and it seems like it needs manual intervention.

Is it possible to be emailed something I can add to my DNS records to prove ownership and have the domain freed up for my account?


If I’m wrong about the DNS stuff by the way, happy to do something else to validate I own the domain :slight_smile:

hi there, do you mind sharing your netlify site name please?

Sure thing, it’s amazing-jennings-4f342b


I presume Jennings is some hot new Jenkins replacement :wink:
