    Hi @ArvindKumar-1655,

    I think the easiest way is to make a support ticket for Azure Active Directory.

    Is the subscription still active?

    Hello @ArvindKumar-1655,

    Restoration of the deleted tenant is not possible. If the tenant is deleted , your domain should be automatically free and you must be able to just verify it again as you had verified it earlier. You would need to add the custom domain in your new tenant and it will again generate a new TXT or MX record values . Once you update the DNS data for those records for your custom domain , you will be able to use the same custom domain with your new tenant . If you are still getting an error that your domain is already being used in other tenant then in that case as @TKujala suggested above , you may need to engage the support team.

    If you do not have access to support , please email us at azcommunity[at]microsoft[dot]com and we will help you alternate support options referencing this thread along with your azure subscription ID(required). If the information in the posts helped , please do accept as answer so that it helps others in community with similar queries. Please check the custom domain link and it will help you understand more.

    Thank you.
