Verify a domain

Once you have updated the DNS records in your host, return to the Domain Info page and click the green Verify button to compare the name servers on Release to those associated with the domain. In this example, Release will check to see which name servers are associated with using DNS lookups. If the name servers match, the domain will show as verified on the Domain Info page. Verified domains can be used later to create a cluster.

Remove a domain

To remove a domain, go to the Domains page and click the domain to see the Domain Info page.

Click the Delete button to show the delete confirmation dialog. The Delete button will be disabled if this domain is currently in use by any running clusters.

NOTE: You may only remove domains which are not in use with any active clusters. You can tell if any clusters are using a domain by navigating to the Domain Info page looking at the "In Use By" section.

Type in the domain and click the Delete button. This will remove the domain from Release and attempt to remove any DNS entries created for it.

NOTE: If the domain was part of an existing DNS entry created outside of Release, it will not be removed from the cloud provider. You may have to manually remove any entries which Release did not explicitly create in those situations.
