Subdomain deletion time


#1

Hey there. Well, I have deleted a subdomain I created but I can still see it. Actually, it returns me the “bad_httpd_conf” error. Though it doesn’t appear on my Control Panel anymore.

I deleted it two days ago. Does anyone know how long it takes to completely delete a subdomain? I wanted to use it again but the control panel tells me it is on their system.

Thank you

Sometimes it can take awhile. You can send support a ticket and they’ll remove it for you.

I never considered how long DNS propagation affects a deleted site. Never experimented with it. But if it’s anything like when you add a site, it can take up to five days, as seiler hinted at. In the mean time, it wouldn’t surprise me if you got some sort of webserver error.

I think there’s something internally at DH that can occasionally go wrong when removing old info.

It’s usually pretty quick–I’ve removed a domain, then clicked right back and added it before. But recently, I went to add a domain that I had removed months ago and it was still in there, so DH had to flush it out.

Thank you both for your help. So I’ll try contacting DH support to speed up the process.

Thank you again.
