Remove a domain that is being used by blogger

Hi everyone, I need help reusing my domain name on my new WordPress site. I basically did a backtrack on the steps I did when I connected the domain to blogger, I removed all of the DNS Records that I have written, and I also removed the domain url on blogger. But the domain is still being used on a site.

 

Are there any extra necessary steps I need to do to remove the domain from being used on a site?  Or should I just wait for 24-48 hrs?

Thanks!

Hello.

 

If your domain is registered with GoDaddy then you need to do this: https://uk.godaddy.com/help/set-nameservers-for-domains-hosted-and-registered-with-godaddy-12316

 

Also this https://uk.godaddy.com/help/change-nameservers-for-my-domains-664 could help you.

 

I hope this will help you. Good luck.

Re: Remove a domain that is being used by blogger

Hi Adrian8, Thank you for the reply, but unfortunately the problem still persists. I searched all over the internet and finding the answers seems difficult.

I restored the defaults of most of the DNS zone settings. I'm starting to believe that the problem is not with godaddy. And one thing i noticed is i can still use my domain as a custom url on blogger, as if my domain is still verified by blogger, which is puzzling me because i already removed those DNS settings.  Am i missing other things? should i delete my webmasters account?

Let's take it step by step:

-1- Is your domain registered with GoDaddy ?

-2- What type of hosting do you have?

-3- Do you have more than one domain in that hosting account?

1. Yes the domain is registered with GoDaddy
2. Linux Hosting
3. Currently i have two domains, the 1st is a stand-alone purchase, and the 2nd comes as a free domain for purchasing a hosting account.  And I want to use the 1st domain on my hosting account.

- Linux hosting with cPanel?

- Have you associated any domain with your hosting plan?

Re: Remove a domain that is being used by blogger

Hi Adrian, I discovered on what's causing my problem.  I tried(out of curiosity) The Website Builder,  and was kinda stupid to forget it.

And all I did was to delete the Website Builder on my accounts and billings, and now I can use my domain now. Thank you for the suggestion you gave me, happy new year!
