Hello. Today, I purchased domain name “ishaanbhagat . com” and tried to connect GithubPages to it. It worked, but the repo I used was using a Jekyll Theme that looked quite bad, and I could not find a way to fix it, so I permanently deleted my repo called “ishaanbhagat.github .io”.
Later the same day, I created another repo with the same name, forked from a another user’s repo. However, at the Settings > Pages Menu, when I try to add “ishaanbhagat . com”, it says The CNAME
ishaanbhagat . com is already taken. Check out https://docs.github.com/articles/troubleshooting-custom-domains#cname-errors for more information."
I have a feeling that the previous instance of the repository is still linked to the CNAME file with my domain, however, I am unable to access this repository as it had the same name as the new repository. The site itself shows this error code, presumably due to the linked repository being deleted.
BTW some links have spaces in them as a new user can only upload 2 links.
I do realize that it probably wasn’t the best idea to permanently delete the repository I intended on working on, but I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me. Do advise me on what to do so I can connect my domain to this new site.
