Name is already taken

I need help verifying my domain, vedan.tk

hi there, did you complete these steps?

I did, i also checked whether the txt record had propogated using host -t txt vedan.tk and it indeed shows that the record has been update. It shows verified-for-netlify. Including the dot. Is that the problem. As i did not have any public post or case number. I left the value field empty.

I have these options:

  • Name
  • TTL
  • Target
    Where should I put what? Should I try without the dot, What should be in the name? vs target?

In the mean time, I’m trying Yandex DNS, but I’d really prefer using Netlify. Thanks :slight_smile:

Your host call should return the value you specified, but does not currently:

$ host -t txt vedan.tk
vedan.tk has no TXT record

Perhaps you didn’t set what you think you did?

We were hoping that you would set this record:

  • name “verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk”
  • type TXT
  • TTL doesn’t matter; accept the default or don’t set one
  • target doesn’t make sense for a TXT record but VALUE should be something like verified for https://community.netlify.com/t/name-is-already-taken/22273

Once you’ve done that, this should be the result of your host call:

$ host -t txt verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk
verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk descriptive text "verified for https://community.netlify.com/t/name-is-already-taken/22273"

So apparently my CNAME was blocking propogation. I have no idea what that means, but removing the CNAME record fixed it.

Now this is how it looks:
host -t txt verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk

vedan.tk descriptive text "verified for https://community.netlify.com/t/name-is-already-taken/22273"

Setting verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk as the name would not work, is this okay?

@fool

Thanks for verifying! I am unsure what is needed next, so please let us know!

To be more specific @vedantkarandikar - do you need us to remove or change a setting around that name, and if so, how are you trying to use it at Netlify so we can look in the right place(s) and assist?

@fool @laura
I still am unable to verify my domain.
It still says “name is already taken, vedan.tk is conflicting the ownership with other existing zones”

This is how it looks from my terminal:

❯ host -t txt verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk
verified-for-netlify.vedan.tk descriptive text "verified for https://community.netlify.com/t/name-is-already-taken/22273"

Can you possibly manually verify my domain?

Hi, @vedantkarandikar. I also confirmed the verification record is working and I removed the DNS zone from the other account.

Please try adding the custom domain to your new account and, if it still doesn’t work, let us know.
