Can a preexisting website stop a new website from loading?

I’m using a custom domain to host my website, after going through the necessary steps and waiting for more than 48hrs, the website doesn’t seem to load, meanwhile, I had an existing website on my hosting, is it possible that the pre-existing website to stop my new Webflow account from loading?

Hi @Emwest, it could be that you’ve got conflicting DNS records. I’ve run into issues in the past where I added Webflow’s DNS records, but I didn’t remove some preexisting CNAME or A records for the same domain or subdomain.

Here’s the Webflow University article on connecting a custom domain that could be helpful if you haven’t already seen it.

I hope that helps!

I have seen the link before, thank you for your help.
