Hi carelessmessage,

If you have recently deleted your site and it is still showing up in Google's index, this is perfectly normal. It will take some time for Google to try re-spider your domain and see that it is no longer published. When Google detects this change, it will remove the pages from the index. This can take some time, but will eventually happen as Google wants to keep an accurate index.

If you are still seeing your site online after typing it into your address bar, this is a different story. Please share your site URL with us so we can test opening it on our end.

Thank you, carelessmessage.

I too was able to see your site online, however, after working with a few colleagues, we have resolved the error you were seeing. In order to see your site as unpublished on your end, you will need to clear your browsers cache. Here's how: Clear Cache.

When testing this after the fix and clearing our caches, we were able to see your site as unpublished in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.
