Add DNS hosting: "This isn't a valid domain name"

I have a domain name registered with another provider (because it's not a domain extension that GoDaddy sells). I have managed WordPress hosting with GoDaddy. I am trying to get the domain on the other registrar (which I believe is owned by 101) to point to my GoDaddy hosting.


I have tried following the steps to add DNS hosting, but when I get to to the first screen, I enter the domain name and get a message that says "This isn't a valid domain name."  Any ideas what I am doing wrong? I am definitely entering the domain name correctly (


Any ideas on how to make this work? Is there another way to do this? Thanks!
