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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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?
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!
You are welcome.
Happy new year!
