If you are getting the above mentioned error, follow the below steps:

1. Check whether any main domain is created with the same name

2. Else follow the below steps:

# /scripts/killdns

# grep -ir /var/cpanel/users
remove the domain name from the listed files.

# grep -r /var/cpanel/userdata
remove the domain name from the listed files.


Also, remove the domain entry from apache configuration file.

Restart apache.
/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Thank you.
