Blog Owners Seeing bX-afpmyd When Trying To Un Delete Custom Domain Published Blogs

We're seeing a few reports this week, from blog owners who recently deleted their custom domain published blogs - who now lament their decision - and who are unable to un delete the blogs.
I can't "undelete" my blog, that used to be published as a custom domain URL. I received the following error code: bX-afpmyd.
This problem, like others, appears to have started when custom domain publishing was restored, last week.

Blogs deleted when a custom domain URL is in use have always been a challenge. Similar to the abandoned custom domains problem, they have resulted in yet another cause for the well known custom domain problem
Another blog ....

Now that Blogger is requiring verification of domain ownership, by adding ownership certification using a new "CNAME", it's likely that either lack of the new "CNAME", or broken blog / domain pointers, are going to be a problem when un deleting blogs formerly published to custom domains.

If you are unable to un delete your previously deleted custom domain published blog - and you are otherwise able to restore the blog in question - you, like other blog owners trying to make changes to their custom domain published blog, will need to use the Publishing wizard, and the "settings instructions", and add a unique domain ownership certificate to your non BlogSpot domain. Then, if able to un delete the blog, you'll need to re publish the blog to the domain.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
