How to Fix the “This domain is already hosted with Hostinger” Error

Learn what to do if you get the error “This domain is already hosted with Hostinger”

Updated over a week ago

When adding a website to a hosting plan, you may get the following message:

This domain is already hosted with Hostinger. Please choose a different domain or remove this one from other hosting plans.

This happens when the domain or subdomain you're trying to add to a hosting plan is already added as a website at Hostinger. It can be added either to:

  • The same or another hosting plan in the same Hostinger account

  • Another hosting plan in a different Hostinger account

For technical and security reasons, each domain can only be added to one hosting plan at a time. You can release the domain from its current location as long as the hosting plan is active or suspended due to non-payment. Just follow these steps:

  1. Find the website linked to the domain using the search bar on the Websites section of your hPanel:

    The websites search bar on hPanel
  2. If the domain is not listed there, check your other Hostinger accounts if you manage multiple

  3. Once found, save a backup copy of it if needed and delete the website

Now you can add it to your preferred hosting plan 😊
