Thank you for the question.
Sorry for the inconvenience. However, Registry of CNNIC set some limits to all Chinese domains’ nameserver update for the sake of security. Only the nameservers recognized by CNNIC can be accepted.

Please make sure that you would click the button of “Restart NDNS” to complete the DNS records setting.
