I have a couple of domain names in Hostgator which I am transferring to my droplet. I’ve been transferring all the domains successfully except for 1 which I’ve received that weird message when trying to add the DNS to my droplet.
I get the error message “Name has already been taken.”
It’s weird. I don’t have any other droplets created, just this one.
I didn’t point the domain name from the registrar to digital ocean because of this yet.
Never seen that error before. Any ideas?
