  1. Thanks for solving this technical issue in neat and clear article.

  2. Does it redirect immediately? I have tried it but it is still showing same error.

    1. When a domain is newly registered, the nameservers are changed, or DNS changes are made, you can expect a propagation time up to 24 hours. This is because it takes time for the DNS to take effect across the internet. The actual time of propagation may vary in some locations based on your network setup

  3. please mine is writing WARNING !!!! Your domain name doesn't have the same nameservers as NS records in this zone
