Name is already taken, conflicting the ownership with other existing zones

site name: techsangam.netlify.app
custom domain for which I’m trying to enable Netlify DNS: www.techsangam.com

I had posted on an existing post with the same issue (here -->
Name is already taken, conflicting the ownership with other zones)

but creating a fresh post in case the old post is not triggering notifications at your end.

I’m seeing the error “Name is already taken, conflicting the ownership with other existing zones” when I try to setup “Netlify DNS” on my account.

Previously my domain was hosted on dreamhost so CNAME record (without changing nameservers on DH) worked. However, techsangam.com wasn’t working even after I added an A record to the IP 104.198.14.52 so I proceeded to:

  1. Change nameservers on DH side to point to dns1.p04.nsone.net (and dns2, dns3, dns4) - DONE
  2. Remove the CNAME record on DH - DONE
  3. Remove the A record on DH - DONE

I thought removing the custom domain and re-adding it would fix the issue but it didn’t.

Using the guide, I too have created a TXT record for “verified-for-netlify.techsangam.com
