No domains shown, but unable to add domain, "domain already exists"
I deactivated my DO account some time ago, which I previously used to host a web site, and now I have re-activated it. I created a new droplet.
I still control the original domain, and it is still configured to point to DO’s name servers.
When I visit the “domains” section of my dashboard, I see “Looks like there are no domains here.”. So I type in my domain, choose my droplet from the list, and click “Add Domain”. An error message shows “Domain ‘wbarlow.me’: name already exists.”
I think something didn’t go smoothly in the re-activating of my account. How can I fix this?
