So is this happening only with the registration of this specific domain?

This is an issue with dot.tk. I have tried myself using different nameservers even from different providers and the error is the same.

Therefore, this is out of our control. You might have some luck contacting them and informing them of this issue.

I actually got my account connected! I wasn't able to add all four of them at the same time, so I put the first two and saved, then did the third and fourth one by one. It seemed to do the trick. I recommend you add the nameservers one by one and it might work.

Officaly you do not set the IP, just type the servernames only and I try it with my webhosting also and it gave me the same message, so dot.tk have a netserver problem, try again this weekend ;)

The only real thing working with .tk is domain forwarding...

had a lot of trouble with this one yet...

but it's still good to forward to deep links... like facebook profiles youtube channels and so on:

neq3forums-dot-tk-got-ns-server-problems.tk
should be online in the next 48 hours :D

not recommended for seo purpose though... just another form of link shortening ;)

Good Luck

You see the problem with .tk is they are run threw freenom. Freenom likes to put ads on your site if you get enough traffic and the way they can do that is by making you use their DNS in stead of your own. So your best option is to use theres and point your A DNS at it. See attachments for examples.

Yes that makes sense...

I mostly use cu.cc...

and if I use cu.cc or .tk then mainly for programming stages and playing around with stuff.... especially for larger sites or multi site projects....
saving 3 month on 10 domains for example...

so I never ran into having enough visitors over these domainnames...
.com just looks better - more professional :D

another good application for free domain names is with the new gTLD domain names...
no need to wait several month but having the site ready wen the new ending goes life and then just switching...

Good Luck
