    Delete domain

When a domain is hosted, DNSimple will stop resolving DNS for the domain.

If the domain is resolved with DNSimple, we will immediately stop resolving it, and the records will be removed according to their TTL.

If the domain is registered with DNSimple, deleting the domain from your account will not delete the domain registration in the registry. Once a domain is registered you can’t delete it. You have to wait for the domain to expire.
