Deleted domain - still visible and not able to add it again

I tried to delete a domain name from Digital Ocean because for some reason it did not redirect to the specified IP.

  1. I “deleted” it, but it still shows under the project it was deleted from.

If I try to click the domain I get this error: Looks like something went wrong… If this keeps happening, check out

  1. If I try to move resources into “myproject” it will list the domain which I deleted.

  2. If I try to “add domain” under networking I will get this error: Data domain ‘’: name already exists.

Sooo what do I do here? I deleted the domain. The domain is not listed under networks. I am not able to add the domain. The domain is still visible under one of the projects.

Someone experienced this before :)?

I’m sorry about the trouble this is giving you. I just deleted a domain from my account to confirm that the function is working. Can you try disabling browser extensions, or even testing in a different web browser, to see if the problem persists?


Apparently there is a problem with deleting domains currently.

I logged out, and it was visible again under networking, I tried to delete it once again however it failed and is just stuck at the loading animation… and is now back at the same situation as stated above.
