Not able to add <mydomain>.myfritz.net as DDNS Hostname

Using a fritzbox I configured nextDNS sort of successfully (unfortunately still with DNS leakage), however, as I try adding my MyFRITZ! address from within nextDNS setup webpage it sais "There was an error while getting the IP address behind this hostname" - even though its working and I can log in to it on the fritz portal.

Tips?

    Can you access that address from outside your home (LAN) network?

       You didn’t describe from where you logged in into that portal.

      So it also works when you try it from a cellular network or someone else’s WiFi?

      EDIT: What happens if you look up the IP for that domain name using other name servers like 1.1.1.1, 8.8.8.8, or 9.9.9.9?

       Mate, I appreciate your efforts but please: You asked if I can access it from outside the network. 2nd time answering the same: Yes. Can call the URL, ping it, trace it...  

      Simple question. Simple answer - which remains the same.

      Anyway, I am fed up with nextDNS. Gonna ditch it.

    Mine still just works @majortom perhaps try again, I've copied it from the FitzBox user interface into the NextDNS settings page

       Thanks. Its simpy not working and I am not willing to spend any more time on this sh*t. Wasted several hours now to get nextDNS working without DNS leakage with no success = useless to me since I can't trust it remains working.

       @nextdns is incredibly stable for us, only after AVM Fritzbox firmware updates need to tweak settings sometimes.
