Question

It says 'Domain already exists' when I try to add a domain to my list of domains in the networking section of the console.

When I go to add a specific domain to my domain list it says the domain already exists, however, that is not the case. For other domains it lets me add them to the list. Why can’t I add this specific domain to the list of domains? Is there anywhere on this website where I can fill out a support ticket? I am having trouble finding links.

Hello there,

The system performs a DNS lookup to see if the domain has already been added to DigitalOcean. If it has, you’ll receive a message that says that the domain example.com: Name already exists. If the domain has not been previously added to DigitalOcean’s DNS service, it will be added.
