Domain Already Taken Error

If you receive this error while setting up a domain name, it means the domain is already being used by another site on the platform.


Try one of the following:

  • Search your dashboard for a site using the domain name. You can enter the URL in the search field to search.
  • If an old site was using the domain, locate it and unset the domain, then republish.
  • Contact the owner if you know who owns the domain or who might have set it up.
  • Login to your domain host and create a TXT record with the name value domainverification and have its text value be proofofdomainXX-XX-XX (the XX-XX-XX is today's date). This demonstrate that the domain's owner (you) is requesting the change.
