Your registrar may not be accepting your domain because of configuration limitations for the DNS zones. This frequently happens with country-specific domains. Before pointing a domain to the country-specific domain, you need to fulfill their special requirements.
If you find yourself running into this issue, repeatedly follow these brief steps:
Suppose you edited your DNS zones and/or nameservers, and you would like to confirm they are set correctly outside of the registrar saying they are. You can do a Whois check or a propagation check from third-party tools to do this.
Run a whois check by navigating to Whois.com and enter in your domain. This will show you an abundant amount of information, but most importantly, it will display the current registrar and nameservers.
Run a propagation check by navigating to WhatsMyDNS.com. You will be able to run a check on multiple records, such as your "A" record and "NS" (nameservers) records.
Note: Once set, you may need to wait a moment for propagation to begin. Full propagation can take 24-48 hours. However, you should notice records starting to point correctly within an hour or two upon some locations.
