Handling the domainadmin-domainexistsglobal error
Have you seen the following error while adding a domain or subdomain within cPanel?
This is a pretty common issue that occurs when there is a pre-existing DNS record or domain. To get beyond this issue, you need to check the DNS zone of the corresponding primary domain. You then need to check if there is a DNS record already added for the subdomain or addon domain that you are trying to add.
In case a DNS record already exists, you can’t add a new domain until you delete the corresponding entries
If a DNS record does not exist, then you need to make sure that there is no subdomain present and related to the same primary domain in the cPanel
If no subdomain exists, then the next step is the check for an existing DNS entry. There may be an existing DNS entry of a previous DNS management. Removing this DNS entry may also resolve your problem
Checking DNS records in cPanel
Click on Domains
You will encounter a screen similar to below
Click on Manage – in order to change the DNS values
And then ‘Modify the Zones’
You’ll see a screen like below
Once you are in the DNS editor, you can edit the DNS zones where you can change a record or add a new records
That’s it. That’s how you resolve the error.
