Need help removing netlify dns records

My primary domain shivam.dev earlier pointed to a Netlify site. I removed the site, only to realize that these DNS entries cannot be edited by me. Need help removing it.

Who is your DNS provider and domain registrar? Do you intend to host a new site under that domain with netlify? Did you delete just the site, or the account under which the site was registered too?

Registered from Google, but the DNS is managed by Netlify.

Have another site I want to point to, it’ll be a CNAME entry

Just the site, shivamdev.netlify.com

Hi, @scmmishra. This is the right place to ask about this and there is a support guide with more information here:

I’ve unlocked all the existing NETLIFY and NETLIFYv6 type DNS records for this domain name now. If there are other questions or concerns, please let us know.

If that’s the case, I think you can just switch back to using Google as your DNS provider by changing the nameservers, and add a CNAME record there.

Thank you @luke

This is an option, however I prefer Netlify DNS because I host more than a few projects here, having all on the same platform is a tiny convenience but helpful.
