    Domains cannot be removed from a domain type — they can only be reassigned to another domain type. By adding domains, you are only reassigning the domains to a different domain type. Newly added domains appear in green text. You can only delete domains displayed in green text. After clicking Apply, the domains cannot be deleted.

  3. Click Next.
